At Zinck Computer Group we’ve developed a COM component that we use in our eTransmit product to send documents by email or fax. Up till now we’ve been installing and registering the component on each workstation that uses eTransmit. This is a huge pain in the A%$# and has led to many support calls and emails.

We started considering a rewrite of the component into an old style C DLL. But recently, we’ve been experimenting with Registrationless COM.

This technique ROCKS! With some easy to setup manifest files, you can put all your COM components in your application folder and just instantiate them like you used to, no registration required.

Windows XP and up, but definitely worth the effort.
