    COM+ Events in NT 4.0


    I'm trying to figure out how to use COM+ Events in a NT 4.0 environment.

    Now, before everyone goes and tells me that COM+ is a Windows 2000 feature,
    let me say that I
    already understand that, unfortunately Windows 2000 is a while off for us
    yet. However, I did notice
    that the BackOffice Server 4.5 installation installed a "COM+ Events Service"
    on our NT 4.0 server, so I
    figure that it should be possible to use COM+ Events on NT 4.0.

    I've studied the semantics on creating publishers and subscribers, and that
    is not a problem. The
    problem is configuring the publishers and subscribers on the server. All
    of the documentation and
    articles I have read refer to using the Component Services snap-in to configure
    publishers and
    subscribers, however, I don't seem to have a Component Services snap-in or
    I can't find it, probably
    because that snap-in is only distributed with Windows 2000.

    Has anyone else had any success using COM+ Events on NT Server 4.0 that would
    be willing to point me
    in the right direction?

    Thanks,
    Brian

    Yes, you are right. COM+ Events and IObjectConstruct only in Win2K. Go
    to MSDN to look for "COM+ Overview for MS Visual
    Basic Programmers".
