Well, I'm thinking about the possibility to save the project settings (only
how a PBC is build) without any sequences and/or segments (with/-out
entry's) to a file. In my personal case, this would be very interesting
while I'm currently creating a series of disks with the same PBC layout
(only the MPeG-streams are diferent) for a complete serie. I already have
written 45CD's. It's annoying work to create the PBC each time again..!
For VC++, the most easiest way is to use archives (object-streams). But
naturely it would be more compliant if I used a XML-parser that can do this.
This way the user might modify such a file and the program will accept any
good tags only (e.g. remarks will be ignored).

I'll go looking for that parser later, thanks for the tip.
maybe, if I study this parser, I can find some way to let it accept the
meta's anyhow (maybe I can create a new COM, using this parser as parent)...
In case it's not a COM (but I think it is, like you mentioned that it works
as DCOM) I'll mungle with it and with MSXML3-parser. I'll keep you informed
about this...
