True. On the other hand, it /should/ throw an error on something it doesn't
And by the way, I just added the displaying of the variable names (which can
be retrieved using ITypeInfo::GetNames). It shows the arguments name as
"bstFileName". And that looks to be indicating a simple single filename.

I think it depends on how well the variable names are choosen. And lets not
forget the help strings.

And in that case its choosen badly. :-|

As I'm using VBScript to "talk" to it it should be doing all the
conversions. Thats what the typelib is for.

Nope. I've heard of it for quite a number of years now, but for some
reason I never came around to looking at it.

:-) When I need a typelib I write those IDL files by hand.
Alas, my IDL compiler is Borlands mktypelib, and although when I bought
Tasm32 v5.0 I got some books with it they doesn't really start to explain
how to create such IDL files. Only recently I found out thru the Web that I
do not need to supply the "id(0x??)" parts to the method definitions.
