C# throws Query Interface exception when casting to DTS.DataPumpTask

.NET/C#/SQL-Server Experts:

I created a sample DataPump Package using the DTS GUI in Enterprise manager and exported it to VBScript.   I put it  in a VB6 project and it worked fine.

VB6 codefrag:

    Dim oTask           As DTS.Task
    Dim oBulkDataPump   As DTS.DataPumpTask

... Package & Step creation omitted...  

    Set oTask = oPackage.Tasks.New("DTSDataPumpTask")
    Set oBulkDataPump = oTask.CustomTask

...Properties, Transformation and execution stuff omitted....

The above code works fine.

I converted it to C# solution.

C# codefrag:

DTS.Task  task= mPkg.Tasks.New( "DTSDataPumpTask");
DTS.DataPumpTask pump = (DTS.DataPumpTask)task.CustomTask;

....setting DTS.DataPumpTask properties omitted....

At *runtime, the above code throws a Query interface exception when creating the pump;

Upon examining the DTS.DataPumpTask interface, sure enough, it does not extend DTS.CustomTask.  And certainly DTS.CustomTask does not extend DTS.DataPumpTask.  

What do I have to add to my C# code to make it behave like the old VB6 code?  Somehow I feel I need a different mechanism to get the correct interface than class casting.

The Project references I've added are to the version 2 of the DTS com libraries.  The interop client callable wrapper dlls are in my bin directory.  And everything compiles cleanly.

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance

Brad
