.NET provides a completely new approach to creating and deploying components, which are also known as assemblies. With COM, the developer has to register the component on the server -- i.e, its information had to be updated in the system registry. The purpose is to keep the information of the components in a central location so that COM+ can find the appropriate component.

With .NET assemblies, the assembly file encapsulates all the meta data required in special sections called manifests. In .NET, for an assembly to be available to the client, it only has to be in the same directory as the client application. When the client application requests for an instance of a particular component, the .NET runtime searches the same directory for the assembly and then interrogates the assembly's manifest to know the various classes that the component provides. Since the information about the component is kept in manifests, the developer doesn't have to register the component on the server, and several versions of the same component can safely co-exist together on the same machine.

Visual Basic .NET also introduces a new middle-tier component, Web Services. Web Services are hosted by ASP.NET, and use the HTTP transport allowing method requests to pass through firewalls. They pass and return data using industry standard XML, allowing other languages and other platforms to access their functionality. Although they do not support MTS transactions, you may want to change your MTS/COM+ components to Web Services in cases where you do not need distributed transactions but still want to interoperate with other platforms. Although there is no automatic method for this, the task is trivial and can be completed in minutes using a drag-and-drop operation after your project has been upgraded to Visual Basic .NET.
