Conversion of MTS Packages to COM+ Applications

COM+ can be viewed as a merging of Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS) and COM, along with the introduction of new features.

For the most part, your MTS packages are converted to COM+ applications during the Windows setup procedure. Without doing anything beyond the typical setup, you can take advantage of all the new COM+ features. For a list and brief explanation of the most significant COM+ improvements, see COM+ Programming Overview.

If you would like to learn more about the automatic conversion of MTS packages to COM+ applications during the Windows setup process, as well as how to troubleshoot any errors that might occur during this process, see Automatic Conversion from MTS.

If you would like to learn how to manually convert MTS packages to COM+ applications, see Manual Conversion from MTS.

You should also be aware that installing COM+ introduces several new capabilities that your MTS packages may be able to use as COM+ applications. These are explained in COM+ Conversion Results and Issues.
