I have a C++ COM component built using only win32 lib.  I added a couple of
files from MMC help sample files to my projects and now I'm getting these
link error when I compile.  Can someone tell me how to correct this?  Thank
you.

Error      36      fatal error LNK1120: 3 unresolved externals      .\Debug/extProp.dll
Error      34      error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "public: __thiscall

Well, you will need to add the files from the sample that cointain the code from the error message also. Search the files for "CComponent::CComponent", "CComponentData::CompareObjects" and "CDataObject::CDataObject" and add the files where they are found to your project.

Was it compiling before adding the new files?

Seems like the file which you have added have some dependent dll which you might have to include in your project settings. It is looking for some functions in the relying dll

The files 'dataobj.cpp' and 'compdata.cpp' should contain the missing functions. If yes, you need to add these cpp files to your project. If not, check the headers 'dataobj.h' and 'compdata.h' whether they have defined these functions.

I was missing dataobject.cpp.  Once I added that I am now down to one compiling error.  It seems to say that problem calling CComponentData::CreateComponent.  I have the CompData.cpp and .h file already in my project.  Why am I still getting this error?  Thank you.

Any other file there that contains the constructor 'CComponent::CComponent'?

check the function CComponentData::CreateComponent in compdata.cpp

There must be a statement like

        pComponent = new CComponent(this);

If so, you have to add the constructor "CComponent::CComponent(CComponentData *)" to dataobject.h and dataobject.cpp, but don't ask me how to implement it. I don't know that sample and what is the purpose of these classes.
