Where did you get that .tlb file from, and could you send it to me?

It doesn't look encoded, it's just different (it's most likely what is
boasted as the "Typelib 2 Format"). Win2000's stdole32.tlb also uses this
new format (it has a "SLTG" signature instead of the old "MSFT").

Something like that, except it's called a "proxy", not a "dummy object".
