Hi all,
 I developed COM Component using ATLCOM AppWizard.I added a simple ATL Object and tried adding a function to that object.When i add fucntion that works with numbers (i.e both in and out parameter are long numbers),then no problem, the component is getting compiled but when tried adding a function that takes char* as in parameter its giving me the following errors.

d:\vc6\atl\include\atlcom.h(1827) : error C2259: 'CComObject<class CATL_COM>' : cannot instantiate abstract class due to following members:

   d:\vc6\atl\include\atlcom.h(1823) : while compiling class-template member function 'long __stdcall ATL::CComCreator<class ATL::CComObject<class CATL_COM> >::CreateInstance(void *,const struct _GUID &,void ** )'

d:\vc6\atl\include\atlcom.h(1827) : warning C4259: 'long __stdcall IATL_COM::Display(unsigned char *,int *)' : pure virtual function was not defined

c:\com\simpleatlcom\simpleatlcom.h(80) : see declaration of 'Display'

Hi all,
 I finally got the answer myself..whenever we r  using char datatype in the parameter we have to make the following entry in the MIDL tab under Project->Settings Option:
                    /char unsigned

Thats becoz the MIDL Compiler treats char as signed while the VC++ compiler treat char as unsigned so this entry should be made .After making this entry my code worked fine
