I have a COM object which was created a long time ago which I would now like to modify so I can run it on a remote PC. Does anyone have a nice succint set of steps which need to be followed to turn an in-proc .dll into a DCOM object?

If only it were that simple. I did not manage to get that going at all.

In the end I created a new application project, a new automation object, then imported all the existing COM code over and re-created the typelib entries.

A chore, but it works.

Now go ahead and break my heart by telling my how easy it could have been ;-)

hmmm anything that inherits from IAppServer interface should act as DCOM server.
