    COM tlb file

    Hello everyone,


    Two questions about COM tlb file,

    1. I am wondering what are the content of COM tlb file? I think it should be something like import library file (.lib) for a DLL which contains address and signature of exported functions.

    2. Why for C# COM client, tlb file is not needed? Why for C/C++ (native) client, tlb file is needed?


    thanks in advance,
    George
