If you want to write a .NET assembly in Microsoft Visual Studio .NET or Visual Studio .NET 2003 that can interoperate with COM+ clients and be replicated by using Application Center 2000 COM+ replication, the .NET assembly must inherit from System.EnterpriseServices.ServicedComponent. You must also register the .NET assembly by using Regsvcs.exe to add it to a COM+ application. The COM+ application can then be added to an Application Center application. The assembly can then be replicated by using Application Center 2000 COM+ replication and can be load balanced by using the Application Center 2000 component load balancing (CLB) feature.


This method is the only way to create .NET assemblies that interoperate with COM+ clients where the assemblies can be replicated and load balanced by using Application Center 2000.
