Zorked by MIDL

As in, "You are lost in a maze of twisty passages, all alike."

I'm trying to port some code from a 3rd party OCX up to VC++ .NET 2003. As part of this, I'm fighting through the incompatibilities between mktyplib and the MIDL compiler. If I understood why some of these things were coming out different, I'd have a better shot at fixing them. As it is, I've read the (crappy) Microsoft documentation and find that I'm still in the dark.

On Thursday, Doug gets back from Solutions and -- if this doesn't work -- I get eaten by a grue.
