Event ID 4611 — COM+ Event System General Functionality
Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2
COM+ applications use Microsoft Component Object Model (COM) technology in Microsoft Windows operating systems to communicate and take advantage of Windows services. COM technologies include COM+, DCOM, and ActiveX Controls. The COM+ Event System service supports system event notification for COM+ components, which provides automatic distribution of events to subscribing COM components. A publisher makes the method call to initiate an event, and a subscriber receives these calls through the event system rather than directly from the publisher. The COM+ Events service maintains the list of interested subscribers who receive the calls and directs those calls without requiring the knowledge of the publisher.
