ILocalRegistry Interface


Establishes a locally-registered COM object relative to the local Visual Studio registry hive.

Namespace:   Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop.dll)

public interface ILocalRegistry

System_CAPS_pubmethodCreateInstance(Guid, Object, Guid, UInt32, IntPtr)

Creates an instance of a class listed in the local registry.

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetClassObjectOfClsid(Guid, UInt32, IntPtr, Guid, IntPtr)

Returns the class object associated with a CLSID.

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetTypeLibOfClsid(Guid, ITypeLib)

Not implemented. Do not use.


Overloaded. Creates a co-createable COM object.(Defined by PackageUtilities.)

In this interface IUnknown pointers are passed as object instead of IntPtr. The result is a wrapped managed proxy pointer and not the actual IUnknown pointer.

This interface provides a site with a local registry of object and type information. The local registry is not related to the system-wide registration database; it is strictly for use by the project.

Notes to Implementers:

Visual Studio implements this interface.

Notes to Callers:

This interface is obtained from the SLocalRegistry service.
