Special Requirements for .NET 5 and COM

This Script Caching solution extends the WWB-COM and WWB.NET languages using COM implemented by .NET 5 types. Unfortunately, a .NET 5 assembly doesn't supply a type library. To make up for this deficiency this sample uses a .NET 4 project to create a type library file (.tlb) which provides the necessary information for extending the WWB-COM and WWB.NET languages.

// .NET 5 does not create a type library or type info for COM interop // use type library created by .NET 4 basicNoUIObj_.AddExtension(@"{}<APPDIR>\ScriptCaching-Net5.tlb", null); // add the language extensions, specify type because .NET 5 does not implement IDispatch::GetTypeInfo basicNoUIObj_.AddExtension("(Extensions)", extensions_);
