Is it possible to create COM applications in CodeBlocks?
« on: May 19, 2007, 12:24:10 pm »
Hi  :)
Is it possible (and how) to create a COM (component object model) application in CodeBlocks?

Yes, but to what extent I'm not sure. In fact it has nothing to do with Code::Blocks, but everything to do with the compiler you choose -- the default is GCC/MinGW32. This question would be better asked on the MinGW mailing lists.

Full extent. If you use VS at least. You just need the proper headers and libraries.

Thank you, TDragon!
