Error Message

'interface': a custom interface that fires COM events cannot inherit from IDispatch

The following error generates C3732:

// C3732.cpp
#include "atlbase.h"
#include "atlcom.h"


// to resolve this C3732, use dual instead of object
// or inherit from IUnknown
[ object ]
__interface I : IDispatch

[ event_source(com), coclass ]
struct A
   __event __interface I;   // C3732

int main()
