First C++ COM Object

Please help.  I am proficent in C# and the new microsoft .net framework, but I have to access a third part dll using com/interop with .net and I am unable to successfully get the results i need from using platform invoke and the third party dll does not provide a type library so I cannot use the type library importer tool.

I can however create all my logic in C++ and then create a RCW to allow me to acces my new object in C#, but I have never ever create a true c++ com object or dll and don't know where to begin.

Can someone please point me in the right direction whether it be books or web examples.  All I need is a simple example and I can move foreward.

Thanks

Jim

One additional thing, this must be an UNMANAGED exmample as this third party dll is not at all complient with manged classes

You will find lots of COM objects with source code in unmanaged C++ at codeproject.com:
http://www.codeproject.com/com/
There is a special "beginners" section inside.
Good luck,
Jaime.
