I posted the article "SxS Managed COM With Manifest Resource (WinXP and Win2K3)" some time ago and Jason Buxton was interested in applying it to Visual Basic 6.0 client applications. Well, I've put together an MSDN article proposal which addresses that question and is a general improvement on the original article.

The new article is called Registration-Free Activation of .NET-Based Components: A Walkthrough and can be found in the Software category of my articles section. I'm planning accompanying articles named "Registration-Free Activation of COM Components: A Walkthrough" and "Registration-Free COM in Web Applications: A Walkthrough."
