Getting tutorial code to work

If you can get either one of the following tutorials to work, I would like to speak with you:

1)  http://www.codeproject.com/csharp/CsManagedEventSinksHooks.asp

The thing I am most interested in is if the RegEvent.vbs file worked for you.


2)   http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/dnsmtps/html/writingmngsinks.asp?frame=true

If you try this one, I need to know all of the deviations from the tutorial you took to get it to work.


I am just trying to figure out if it is only ME having trouble with these tutorials, or if other people have trouble as well.

Thanks,


Tom

I stumbled upon the answer I needed.

Turns out RegEvent.vbs is not needed.

Exchange Explorer  (found with Exchange 2003 SDK Tools) does the exact same thing.

Go here for details:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/C_Sharp/Q_20962654.html

All I had to do was right-click on the Component Services COM App....and click START.

The tutorial at this link:

http://www.codeproject.com/csharp/CsManagedEventSinksHooks.asp


is very very good......................but it does have some flaws.

1)  You do NOT need to run RegEvent.vbs AT ALL......ignore this suggestion in the tutorial.  Instead, download and install the SDK Tools and run Exchange Explorer instead to register the Event and hook it into the EventSink code.

2)  I recommend using regsvcs /appname:YourAppName <full path to your DLL including extension>      from the command line, instead of using the Component Services GUI to register the COM DLL.  I have to do some further testing to see if the GUI works...but I know for sure the command line route using REGSVCS works well.

3)  After you have registered the COM DLL (your event sink) in Component Services......then go and register the Exchange Store Event using Exchange Explorer.   THEN go back to Component Services....right-click on your App Name and click on START.   This is what actually starts the EventSink (your C# DLL) talking to the Exchange Store.  Until you do this nothing will happen.   This was left out of the tutorial.  A small thing, but an important thing to mention.

UPDATE:

Well, guess what?

I finally had a major breakthrough on this @!#$^% problem that has been driving me crazy for the last few weeks!!!!!!!


It is a very small change.

Apparently the method   MoveFirst(   ) does not work so well with Exchange.

This was the cause of my COMException:   "Interface not registered" error message this entire time.


The solution is to use    Move(1,0)     instead of MoveFirst(  ).


That's it.   Simple.

This answer came courtesy of Tom Rizzo, an author who was kind enough to correspond with me and help me figure-out finally what the problem was.:

If you are getting into Event Sinks....I recommend the following tutorial:

http://www.codeproject.com/csharp/CsManagedEventSinksHooks.asp

Make sure and read the article questions and follow-ups at the bottom!

There are a few caveats.  E-mail me at my Profile e-mail address and we can talk about them.  :)
