COM in Win32
Posted on 2000-04-25
Im asked to write a program which will utilize MS databases. I can write in any language I want. I was going to use VB only because it allows access to COM objects such as ADO & DAO a lot easier than C. But Im more familiar with using Win32 C calls and I like its efficency more, so Id like to try my hand at it in Win32.
Im not unfamiliar with COM (played with DirectX) but I haven't used it extensively. Im wondering how I would access the DAO and/or ADO objects from within a Win32 app. How would I find out the CLSID for it? And how would I use CoCreateInstance() to load the components?
