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

Solution 1

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
