Visual Studio 6 and COM+ development

Ive just started to look in to COM+ programming. Yes I know its an old technology. Still I want to create a distributed application using COM+. However there are very few resources on the net.

What I need is the following:

1. Tips on where to find good source code examples and tutorials.

2. I have COM+ Unleashed but need a more practically oriented book.

3. How can you determine which libs you need? How can you determine that the libs needed for COM+ are present? (Im running VS6 SP5 on W2000)

4. Ive tried to compile an example application but it fails(Should be really easy, a complete workspace was provided)

Application found at:

When processing the IDL-file Shipping.idl I get:

1. unrecognized symbol RecordSet21
2. expected , or ] near QUEUEABLE

Having little experience of COM+ or VS I cant figure out whats wrong or missing.

Thank you for your comment. I want to add the following:

* I want to develop in C++

* I need to handle transactions, database connections and access objects through ASP.

* I believe that the most straight forward way to learn is by studying examples.

* I just installed the Core SDK (Windows .NET Server 2003 RC2) it contains newer header files.
