I am working on an application that uses an out-of-process COM server. Even though our code is perfect Smile | :) , there are some instances where the server EXE may crash or be terminated, causing access violations when the client tries to call a method on one of its proxy objects. Is there a good way to determine if the references to these objects are still valid before trying to use them?
Try...catch blocks work OK, but I feel like there might be a better way to do this. Thanks in advance!

Hm... A static instance in the server code could call the all connected clients by its destructor... :)

Thanks, Eugen. I am testing out a few scenarios with this method and it seems to be working so far!
