I've managed to create a D app that can embed an instance of MSIE :)
looks like I got VARIANT right!

one odd thing
I could not use
extern(C) IID IID_IWebBrowser2;   // error no interface from the locally
defined class
extern(C) CLSID CLSID_WebBrowser; // error class not registered

instead I defined them locally

CLSID LCL_CLSID_WebBrowser = {
0x8856F961,0x340A, 0x11D0, [
0xA9, 0x6B, (byte)0x00, (byte)0xC0, (byte)0x4F, (byte)0xD7, (byte)0x05,
(byte)0xA2]
};

IID LCL_IID_IWebBrowser2 = {
0xD30C1661, 0xCDAF, 0x11d0,
[0x8A, 0x3E, 0x00, 0xC0, 0x4F, 0xC9, 0xE2, 0x6E]
} ;

any ideas anyone ?

if anyone wants the source, email me I've got to tidy it up a little ....
its currently over 200K of source to create a 103K exe

Cool! It'd be great if we could post it on the D web site as an example of a non-trivial COM app!

That's because the Microsoft keeps adding new IID's in their library, and my version doesn't have them.

I think your code could be a great help for others.

I'm in the process of rebuilding my PC [again] and have no FTP access to my
main site.
so I've put a couple of files online on geocities.
http://www.geocities.com/one_mad_alien/dcom_not_dcom.html

one is my whole cygwin build env (makefiles etc) + browser project, the
other is just my current progress through the VC++6.0 header files ..

happy hacking!
