Bringing DCOM remoting functionality to Windows CE and .NET CF2.0

, 17 Apr 2006 CPOL 62.9K 404 40
This article shows how to use DCOM on Windows CE 5.0. We will add full DCOM rich error information, and implement a DCOM interface between a Windows XP .NET 2.0 client and Windows CE DCOM server. With this code, it is possible to code .NET remoting alike functionality through DCOM interop.
