My application creates a COM class (object) and queries for IPersistStreamInit
and call it load method.

Client has to give the COM object. I can have a real simple example COM object
implementing IPersistStreamInit. But I do not know how to implement IPersistStreamInit
in a VB framework. Is this possible, or what is the common way of implementing
persistance in VB so I can change my App to make such calls instead?
