Most likely the COM object is not created and you are calling a member function on a non-initialized component...
Try adding a breakpoint at the line raizing the exception and examine the components handler...
This message looks like from managed code so you will see a description "no valid...(something)" or something similar...

Now when we have changed the location to other server and run the application in c# which is basically calling c++COM DLL empty function,getting error "Exception from HRESULT: 0xC0000005 ",no other detail is coming.I am not able to find out that whether this is from C# code or from c++ DLL.

0xC0000005 is access violation code caused from what I described earlier but also an attempt to call a method on a released object...
Exception from HRESULT means that it is something like that:
HRESULT hr = NULL;
hr = functionfromdll();
functionfromdll() is calling a method or function on a NON existent component, it is not just an empty com function...
That means that the dll has to export a creation (new instance of the component) somehow...
In a very few words you are missing a function call needed to create and init the com object...

what do you mean by 'COM empty function'?

generally, the error you reported is when using a com pointer that is not valid, or that is not fully initialized, or that was no more valid because of an unsuccessful call before. normally you can avoid those errors by always verifying com objects before use.

access violation is pointer error. so it is more likely to happen in c++ dll.

can you run the program in debug mode from visual studio ide?
