This class offers a collection of shared methods for working with unmanaged memory and converting managed types to unmanaged types. Unless you are developing specialized code for marshaling types between managed and unmanaged code, you probably do not need to use any of these methods.
GetHRForException() converts a .NET exception to
a COM HResult. If you are curious about the platform you are
running on, you can find out the size of a character with the
SystemDefaultCharSize field, which is 1 on an
ANSI platform (Windows 9x/ME) and 2 on a Unicode platform (Windows
NT, 2000, and XP).
IsComObject() method to determine
whether an object is actually an unmanaged COM object. The
AddRef() method increments a COM object’s
