You might want to look at


this is a derivative of the comlib that comes with H/Direct.  It's the one we're 
using in Visual Haskell for calling COM.  We're doing much of our COM 
interaction manually via comlib now, because we reached the limits of what 
H/Direct was able to cope with in various ways.  Also you should find that the 
version of comlib above compiles out of the box with recent GHC versions.
