[Mono-list] C# COM server in mono?

By 'hosting mono' do you mean embedding it in a C/C++ COM server?

As lupus said, I am working in this area right now and cleaning up a
patch. However, what I currently have does not support exactly what you
are describing. If you run a managed app or host the mono runtime you
will be able to expose managed objects to unmanaged code as a COM
      However, I currently have no plans of exposing managed objects as
COM servers in a standalone manner (i.e. by calling CoCreateInstance).
Basically, I consider that a luxury not a requirement since mono can be
easily hosted (and it raises a few other questions like which version of
mono to use, what library to expose the COM entry points in, registry
entries, etc). I do think you could easily host mono and expose your own
version of CoCreateInstance to do what you need, if necessary.

	The current mono only supports using COM objects, not exposing
	code as a COM server, AFAIK. Jonathan Chambers is working on
what you
	need and he should have a patch ready shortly.
