In ATL 7.0 the
module statement in your main source file, automatically implements
DllUnregisterServer for you.
The old fashioned way (not so old though) has been thrown away and
_Module is not part of the implementation anymore.
Obviously Microsoft isn't much talking about it anyway, but this object was containing some handy properties that could be very useful in order to manipulate elements that are part of the DLL such as resources.
One way is to use the old
GetModuleHandle() API function but in some cases it wouldn't work for you (and me as well).
So to get access to what was
_Module in ATL 3.0 you simply use
AtlBaseModule has now succeeded to the old
CComModule, pretty cool since there is no real mention of its data members in the documentation.
However instead of using directly
m_hInst you could access it through methods such as
GetHInstanceAt() for resource localization and internationalization (thanx to Tim). Anyway, I hope it will solve your problem, like it has solved mine.
Really small example
HINSTANCE hInst = (HINSTANCE) _AtlBaseModule.m_hInst;<BR>HICON hIcon = LoadIcon(hInst, MAKEINTRESOURCE(212));
