Error Message

'class' : coclass does not specify a default interface that is an event source

A source interface was not specified for a class.

The following sample generates C4681:

// C4681.cpp
// compile with: /W4 /c
#include <atlbase.h>
#include <atlcom.h>


[dual, uuid("00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000")]
__interface IEvent { [id(3)] HRESULT myEvent(); };

[object, uuid("00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001")]
__interface ISource { HRESULT Fire(); };

[ coclass, 
  // Uncomment the following line to resolve.
  // default(IEvent), 
struct CSource : ISource {   // C4681
   HRESULT Fire() { return 0; }
