We are in the process of converting ATL clients to C#.
However,I have not been able to make errors to get progated properly.
I have read that teh ATL component is reqired to support the ISupportErrorInfo interface for erro propagation to work.
Subsquently here is the point where error is raised from a ATL dll
else
{
CreateErrorInfo(&pErrorInfo);
            if(hSuccess)
            {
                  pErrorInfo->SetGUID(IID_IAirlineInfoObj);
                  pErrorInfo->SetDescription(SysAllocString(L"Data not found"));
                  IErrorInfo* _errInfo=NULL;
                  hSuccess=pErrorInfo->QueryInterface(IID_IErrorInfo,(void**)&_errInfo);
                  if(hSuccess)
                  {
                        SetErrorInfo(0,_errInfo);
                  }
            }
            return E_FAIL;
}
And the C# client tries to trap it as follows
catch(Exception e)
                  {
                           
                        Console.WriteLine( " The exception is {0}",System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.GetHRForException(e));  
                  }
This does not work.How do i retrieve the data I had set on the IErrorInfo interface in the COM server?
