Eventing Mechanism Cannot Determine Method Calls From Late-Bound Clients

This article was previously published under Q323319
This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Methods that are invoked as late-bound object references go through the IDispatch::Invoke method. Therefore, the dispatch method names are hidden. The COM+ eventing mechanism accurately reports IDispatch::Invoke as the called method. It is frequently impossible to distinguish which dispatch method was invoked on such an object. Dispatch method names may be reported instead of IDispatch::Invoke.
