How To Create a COM+ Application Proxy That Installs Only Type Library Files

This article was previously published under Q292184
COM+ application proxies usually install the component dynamic link libraries (DLLs) on client computers because the DLLs contain the type library files that are needed to support the component's interfaces in addition to the component code. Only the type library that is contained in the DLL is used on the client computer; the component code is not used. The objects still run on the remote COM+ server as expected.
This article explains how you can have a COM+ application proxy install only a type library file (.tlb) that supports your component interfaces instead of the entire DLL. This file contains only the type library and none of the component code.
Step-by-Step ExampleNOTE: Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 or later must be installed on the COM+ application server computer for this procedure to work correctly.
