    Default 2 COM questions

    I read that one of the advantages to registering COM objects with COM+, is that you can recompile the COM objects without having to restart the web server. This seemed reasonable since COM+ is an object request broker. However, I was experimenting at home on my Win98 o/s, and this didn&#039;t seem to be the case. I still had to call PWS /stop to unlock the object. Does anyone have experience where this works?<BR><BR>Until now, all the ASP development I&#039;ve done was in house. For delivery to a client, is there a convenient way to package COM objects for installation on another server? Does this have to be done manually with regsvr32?<BR><BR>Thanks in advance for any posts.
