        Microsoft is pleased to announce the general availablilty of DCOM98 for Microsoft Windows® 98, version 1.3.

        DCOM98 1.3 extends the support for Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) for Microsoft Windows 98. The DCOM wire protocol transparently provides support for reliable, secure, and efficient communication between COM components such as ActiveX® controls, scripts, and Java applets residing on different machines in a LAN, a WAN, or on the Internet. With DCOM, your application can be distributed across locations that make the most sense to you and to the application.

        Note DCOM98 1.3 is intended for Windows 98 only.

        DCOM98 1.3 improves upon the DCOM in Windows 98 in the following ways:

        • Provides support for Microsoft Visual Basic® 6.0 user-defined data types.

        • The remote procedure call (RPC) now tries multiple IP addresses.

        • The RPC window no longer makes the desktop unresponsive when new applications are launched.

        • Applications may call OleInitialize and OleUninitialize multiple times.

        • Performance has been improved when committing a root storage with a very large compound file.

        • Multiple instances of Visual Basic 4 executables may be shut down in any order.

        For more information about these enhancements, please see the DCOM98 1.3 Release Notes.
