In atlcom.h the following code is generating the error:
#if ((_WIN32_WINNT >= 0x0400 ) || defined(_WIN32_DCOM))
      else
      if (hr == RPC_E_CHANGED_MODE)
      {      
            *pApartmentType = COINIT_MULTITHREADED;
            return true;
      }
#endif

In the objbase.h, the definition for COINIT_MULTITHREADED is gryed.  What does that mean?  It doesn't seem to be commented out but it's causing problem.  It says only needed for NT4, which I don't need to support.  
/ COM initialization flags; passed to CoInitialize.
typedef enum tagCOINIT
{
  COINIT_APARTMENTTHREADED  = 0x2,      // Apartment model

#if  (_WIN32_WINNT >= 0x0400 ) || defined(_WIN32_DCOM) // DCOM
  // These constants are only valid on Windows NT 4.0
  COINIT_MULTITHREADED      = 0x0,      // OLE calls objects on any thread.
  COINIT_DISABLE_OLE1DDE    = 0x4,      // Don't use DDE for Ole1 support.
  COINIT_SPEED_OVER_MEMORY  = 0x8,      // Trade memory for speed.
#endif // DCOM
} COINIT;

Maybe you have your compiler options set to single-threaded instead of multi-threaded?

Not sure about VC8, I am still using VC7 but it will probably be the same or similar ->

1. Within ide right-click on your project and select properties
2. Expand the C++ folder and select Code Generation
3. Check the Runtime Library setting

You need to set this to Multi-threaded or Multi-threaded Debug depending on whether you are building a debug or release version.

It's set at multi-threading.

What if I comment out that section of code in atlcom.h.  Will that be OK?  Becuase that would get rid of the error.

#if  (_WIN32_WINNT >= 0x0400 ) || defined(_WIN32_DCOM) // DCOM
  // These constants are only valid on Windows NT 4.0
  COINIT_MULTITHREADED      = 0x0,      // OLE calls objects on any thread.
  COINIT_DISABLE_OLE1DDE    = 0x4,      // Don't use DDE for Ole1 support.
  COINIT_SPEED_OVER_MEMORY  = 0x8,      // Trade memory for speed.
#endif // DCOM

No, I don't think you should comment out the code - that will be a workaround that might cause other issues. The problem is pointing to something else.

Have you tried defining _WIN32_DCOM in the project settings?

Nop.  How do I define _WIN32_DCOM in my project and where?  Thanks.

Sorry, don't have VC in front of me at the moment but I think it should be something like:

1. Within ide right-click on your project and select properties
2. I think there is a Compile tab or folder.
3. You should be able to select Advanced Compile Options
4. And then I think there is a Custom Constants field in which you can add _WIN32_DCOM

Alternatively, you can just define it in your code somewhere eg.

#define _WIN32_DCOM
