.NET - is it possible to run an out of process COM Server in a WinForms app?
I want to run a COM Server (out of process) as part of a WinForms application - targeting .NET 2.0
The sample code I found here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/977996 uses a message loop, which will most likely interfere with the WinForms app
Is it possible to create a COM server inside a WinForms app? My backup plan is to use a stand-alone COM server EXE (as per the example), and send info to my app through named pipes WCF calls, but I would prefer not to do that due to the overhead of installing and managing another application.
