I know, I know, the title mentions "VB", but don't let that turn you off to one of the best COM books out there directed to non-C developers. Ted does a great and detailed job of explaining the workings of COM, and the VB perspective and examples translate nicely to VFP. -- John Tappero
I agree. This is the best non-C COM book out there. The book is a bit dated on MTS and MSMQ issues, but the base COM section is very valid. -- Rick Strahl
There's a new edition that covers COM+ that looks pretty good. -- Tom Larkin
