Hi all,

How to create a Server side COM Component?
How to refer the Server side COM Component from Clients?

That is, I want to have COM, which will be installed only in the Server. From the Client Nodes, I have to access the Server COM.

In VB6, we have CliReg32 utility to register the Server IP address. What is the equvalent in VB.NET.

A small sample will be very helpful.

I need it very urgently.

Thanks in advance

I get the idea of what you want,.. I've never done this in VB6.

I think you should write a webservice wich is being called from the clients computer to do those things you want the COM Component to do. I think you should solve this with a webservice as replacement of the old COM components.
Maybe this helps you: COM components (who you register in the registry) has now been 'replaced' (not really since so many companies invested in this) by NET components/assemblies:

 (I found this page some time ago)  :  http://www.dotnetbips.com/displayarticle.aspx?id=55

You should be able to read more about .Net Assemblies etc.

I would give you the answer: No, this 'CliReg32 utility' doesn't exists on the .Net platform.
