// Get the type associated with the CLSID
// from the local host.
Type myType2 =Type.GetTypeFromCLSID(myGuid2, ".");
Console.WriteLine("The GUID associated with myType2 is {0}.", myType2.GUID);
Console.WriteLine("The type of the GUID is {0}.", myType2.ToString());

// Create a GUID.
Guid myGuid2 = new Guid("00020812-0000-0000-c000-000000000046");
