We have a requirement to consume C++ COM Component from C++ DLL (MFC 64 bit DLL). This MFC DLL in turn shall be invoked via Node.exe on some action on the web browser.
WEB BROWSER ------> NODE.exe (server) -------------> MFC.DLL (64 bit) -------------> C++ COM .DLL (64 bit).
We don't want to register the COM component explicitly (using regsvr32.exe) on the deployment machine. This is an explicit requirement from our clients. Instead they want us to use the manifest dependencies (described in link below) in visual studio to achieve the same
However these manifest dependencies work only when it is done as part of the EXE settings in visual studio, it does not work if it is done from MFC.DLL.
Now in our case since Node server (Node.exe) shall be invoking our DLL, we wanted to know how to do the manifest settings for COM component in Node server so that we do not require to register the COM component explicitly.
Thanks and regards,
