Win32 API and COM Programming Services
The Win32 API was designed to be an upgrade of the Win16 API which provided the core interface for Win 95 - 98. The Win32 API is the main programming interface for Windows NT 3.1-4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.
Many years ago Win 32 and COM technologies were developed by Microsoft as the core technologies for this company.
COM technology was developed to be a connection tool among many components. COM components also used to create stand-alone components without any UI while these components can be used to provide some services. COM components were modified to support Internet Explorer browser as ActiveX controls. Both those components can be used by third parties to add new components like controls, plug-ins or extensions.
While Win32 is still widely used in development Microsoft is promoting .NET Framework for desktop development for Windows and .NET Compact Framework for mobile development.
SoloSoft has developed and maintained knowledgebase of solutions with repetitive code in Win32 and COM components.
