	The CLSCTX_LOCAL_SERVER is used for function calls in another process
on the same machine. So you wouldn't need any rpc, and I wouldn't think
you would need marshalling .. In the case of InstallShield v6 it isn't
really requesting anything from another process. It's requesting an
object from an EXE, instead of a DLL.
