Hi

This is not homework

I want to write a simple com component that has a single class RandObj and a single method GetRand(ULONG range). i do not want to use any VC++ wizards MFC etc (i will later once i know how it all works), i am usung VC++ 5 though.

i need the code for the com component and a simple client that will call the component . also need istructions on what to put in the registry.

i want to use this as an in-process server so i dont need to get involved with IDL etc for the time being

i will ask another question after this on how to IDL it so it can be DCOM etc

Thanx

Paul

Well, a smaller sample can be found at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/shellcc/shellcc/shell/shell_int/contextmenuhandlers.asp - it demonstrates a context menu handler and several other 'neat' UI stuff, and IMHO also serves as a COM starting point...
