Implements the OLE class factory, which creates OLE objects such as servers, automation objects, and documents.
The COleObjectFactory class has member functions for performing the following functions:
Managing the registration of objects.
Updating the OLE system register, as well as the run-time registration that informs OLE that objects are running and ready to receive messages.
Enforcing licensing by limiting use of the control to licensed developers at design time and to licensed applications at run time.
Registering control object factories with the OLE system registry.
