Hi folks,
I want to put together a COM server which will rely heavily on user defined types.  Can I pass UDT's between clients and the server or do I have to be 'inventive' with the standard types?

Thanks.

In that case DCOM 1.2 will be available. And this handles UDT passing for you. Note that embedded pointers require special consideration.

A complete example, with memory allocation hints is provided within my post here:
