I've heard that certain M$ Office functionality relies on COM.
However, whenever I try to Google this, I turn up diddly, so I don't know. I'd love to get rid of it.
The problem is, if you get rid of everything, it's hard to tell whether the program relies on COM, Windows Scripting Host, DTC, etc.
@FDV, do you know which file contains Windows Scripting Host, I need that for WordPerfect.
Also, when is your latest fileset coming out. I've been wanting to make new CD shortly after Oct. updates came out and I keep getting delayed testing, tweaking, bug-testing, etc.
@CrashBurn, my FDV'd nLited Win2k had DTC taken out and I installed M$Office no problem. Opened Word, Excel and PowerPoint up no problem either.
Can't tell if Outlook requires DTC because I removed OE.
Usually, DTC is required for databased type applications.
P.S. FDV, should we include DCOM in this thread as well? Not sure if DCOM is dependent upon COM, but if it is, it'd be good for people to know that if you need DCOM, you also need COM.
