System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException-->COM component with C# webservice

I am trying to use COM component ( I think it was developed in c++)
in a C# webservice..
I am referrring this DLL in my project (interop & everything is fine..)...
But When I try to call a method of one class I am getting following error:

An unhandled exception of type 'System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException' occurred in system.windows.forms.dll
Additional information: System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: Server was unable to process request. ---> System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80010105): [TempoSoftInterfaceModel.TsSession.1] Y:\TsApiFct\Src\TsSession.cpp(145) : Internal Error.
   at TempoSoftInterfaceModel.TsSessionClass.Open(String DataBase, String Serveur, String User, String PassWord, String Reserved)

it looks like the interop component is throwing the error (Y:\TsApiFct\Src\TsSession.cpp(145)). do you have a try catch block?

Hi,

generically speaking.....

COM will not propagate a C++ or VC++ exception from the callee to the caller,
even when both the caller and the callee are written in C++/VC++. This catches some COM newcomers off guard,
but it should be no surprise if you recall that COM is language-independent. COM boundaries are language boundaries.
For example ,

 if the caller is written in C and the callee is written in VC++/C++, what would COM do with the VC++/C++ exception?

If your code throws an exception, the caller will see a failure with an HRESULT of 0x80010105 (RPC_E_SERVERFAULT).

Interestingly enough, this is the same error the caller sees if the callee attempts an illegal memory access.

In both cases, the COM runtime isolates the caller of the object from runtime errors inside the object and presents them as server errors.

so this what ur friend has got is nothing wrong but a limitation with the interop.

tell him to wait for the next upgrade from MS, by peanuts and chill..

boss i might not have given him an exact solution but this problem is there and we have to live with it.
