STA Threads (VB6 COM Dlls)

Hi

Can I just ask what the status is wrt using STA Threads. I read on the CodeProject page that there was a problem which would be fixed

http://www.codeproject.com/KB/threads/smartthreadpool.aspx?msg=3519475#xx3519475xx

I'm thinking of switching to this from COM+. Have others used this successfully as a bridge to (vb6) COM effective (which is how I am using COM+)? My main concern is whether the SmartThreadPool implements the necessary message pumps for STA Threads or whether it uses some other mechanism to get round this requirement. I have read that it is necessary to mod STPStartInfo with a property indicating STA Threading but because that was the only change required, either the message pump has been correctly implemented or it is not there.

Also, are there any sample projects for this?

Many thx

Simon
