Never heard of this object viewer thing. IDLC is MIDL compatible but that
doesn't mean it will process anything that MIDL will process. First, if
these generated IDL files import other IDL files and/or include headers
from Microsoft's libraries then IDLC will need those as well in which case
you might have problems. Also, IDLC doesn't support every little feature
and attribute of MIDL. So ... it depends. Try it and see. Post a sample.
