For COM methods, strings are passed as BSTR.
If you need to call such method having CString, use CString::AllocSysString method. Using API, BSTR can be created with SysAllocString method.
Inside of this function you can work with BSTR parameter using _bstr_t or CComBSTR wrappers.

Simply use the class wizard to add a method with BSTR parameter.
The class wizard will do everything for you. - I mean, everything.
