COMMAP Sample: Demonstrates COM Interface Map Entry Macros with Compiler COM Support

This basic sample shows how different COM interface map entry macros are used. This sample uses the smart pointer mechanism (_com_ptr_t) of Visual C++ native compiler COM support. The #import mechanism is used instead of the MIDL-generated .h and .c files to provide marshaling information.
