I know superb COM tutorial. I have read 4,5 of them already using different languages, but this one makes it crystal clear. It describes COM architecture in detail rather then explaining how to use it. It does so by creating simple COM object starting from blank C struct that at the end becomes valid COM class.
There are 6 articles (some form of mini book). Its made by the man who created cwebpage.dll. My recomendation is to go to tutorial 6 (last one) and download the source code for it. In that archive, the author made html with all 6 articles, and all 6 source archives in the form of book with the TOC.
This is the link to the first article:

This is the link to the package containing all 6:

Its really extraoridnary set of articles. Don't miss it. Read every one of them as they are connected. Then you will see COM in its real
I was learning this to understand Seans
code better and to see what should I do to create COM interface in AHK. This article showed me that it is possible to create such thing in AHK to behave the very same as for instance in VBScript. TypeLibraries that are needed to decifer COMs data structures and interfaces are available as COM objects too, and those can be quieried in AHK to create VTable that can be used to invoke COM object inteface methods from the ahk script.2 Sean
If you want to create COM interface in AHK for AHK then I suggest you to create new topic on AHK Wiki so all interested can colaborate. I have pretty good understanding about the topic now, seems that PhilHo and foom are willing to help too... This is good oportunity for all of us to learn more about COM and do something useful for the community along the way.
