I am not sure that there are anymore COM developers. But I once wrote a COM DLL that I used in an MFC desktop application that was also used in a web application if that helps.
Why is common sense not common?
Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level where they are an expert.

I'm investigating ways in which a COM component is exposed to the world wide web, preferably in IIS 7.
..you're posting a question - there's a difference.
Is this an exercise in futility, or do COM developers frequently write components to be executed in a windows desktop application as well as in a web application?
Though I do use COM-controls (written in .NET), they do not run on the webserver, but in the webbrowser. Meaning it has the same limitations as installed software, which has, obviously, the preference.
