Using QueryInterface on a COM object is the same as performing a cast operation in managed code. Calling an object with this method causes the reference count to increment on the interface pointer before the pointer is returned. Always use Marshal.Release to decrement the reference count once you have finished with the pointer. To obtain an IntPtr value that represents a IUnknown interface pointer, you can call Marshal.GetComInterfaceForObject, Marshal.GetIUnknownForObject, or Marshal.GetIDispatchForObject.method exposes the
