Hey guys, I'm trying to develop an application that will serve as a wrapper for window's sync center or more appropiately im trying to capture events, errors etc and send an email to someone else when that happens..

However, I'm not very good at COM yet and this api is driving me crazy. I'm following the link
here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb760982(VS.85).aspx and I'm just unable to find the Clsid for this (i have its IID) to be able to implement it...

P.S. I can however implement the interfaces ISyncMgrSessionCreator and ISyncMgrControl but that's cause im following syncmgr.idl which is in the sdk that shows me their coclasses...

Would appreciate any help!

Can you try searching the registry?


If you are running on 64-bit you can see the registry keys of 32-bit apps like this.

Hey jagrut, thanks for the reply
Yeah I did, when i look at the specified interface for example "04EC2E43-AC77-49F9-9B98-0307EF7A72A2" it finds it under hkey_classes_root\clsid\interface

but not in clsid so when i try to make a class out of it, it gives me an error that no such class is registered (and it's correct) so then i try looking for its co-class or the like and the only thing i see is that the IID(interface) above, is proxystub for actxprxy.dll ...... and there is where i start going Ape :P

Can you check source code of the project at http://sync.codeplex.com/?

On Home page it is mentioned

"Note: Vista ISyncMgrHandler Interface [4] are not in working state."

I saw that link before, didn't pay much attention to it.. but now that you write it like that, maybe microsoft just didn't implement the interface properly, from what I saw, there's basically nearly no source code except that one for windows XP...

I wanted to avoid using legacy code, but im guessing by the time my customer will move on to the next OS, it'll be someone's else problem :) Thanks!
