Thanks Mark. I have your book, and it is invaluable. I should have credited you

Is there a way of coding a COM server that can be running before it is accessed
by a COM client? I'm not sure if this makes sense, but I'd like to have a program
running, that can be connected to, perhaps multiple times, without it having to
create multiple instances of teh server, just have multiple clients using it.
