Sometimes I want to do this when the assembly for the serviced component is not present in the GAC or locally, so the type cannot be loaded. And why should it have to be, when all you need is the interface? Then the trick is to do this:

m_Component = (IMyInterface) Marshal.BindToMoniker("new:ComponentName.1");

Thanks for the info. But then, if its not in GAC, neither locally, then where is the assembly located in your scenario? and what about the "new:" new and colon thing that you've specified?

Could you please clarify more.
