Hi,

I have read lot many articles but always wonder what is exact difference between CreateInstance and CoCreateInstance. I know fundamentals of COM but do not know its intricacies.
 
Thanks

CoCreateInstance is the helper function in the COM libraries, that locates the classfactory for the object you're after (by CLSID or PROGID) and invokes its IClassFactory::CreateInstance method
 
So, in practice they're the same thing
