What is with all that mumble of reusable code, interoperability and enhanced stabilty if you can't use/proof it because it is a nightmare to use it in a common project. Where common project means: windows and office integration. And that is the case at least for me. (And I doubt that I am alone with that definition of "common project".)

  The biggest Haskell/COM project I know of was Krasimir's implementation of Visual Haskell, which was a plug-in for Visual Studio.   The VS interfaces are COM ones, so he had to do lots of COM stuff.  He may be able to help you.  Sigbjorn Finne knows a lot about HDirect, but he's really busy with his day job at Galois!


  There's a bit of a chicken-and-egg problem here; the COM tools are not well maintained, so that discourages use, which in turn  makes it less rewarding to work on them.  What I don't know is the level of suppressed demand: if there were good tools, would lots of people start using them?

  Are there any currently maintained tools for interfacing Haskell with COM objects?   It appears that both Haskell script and Haskell direct haven't been updated since the turn of the century, and have fallen out of step with recent library changes.
