VS 2015 – fix toolbox with COM components.

Today I will show you how to add COM components to your Visual Studio 2015 toolbox.
In this example I add the Windows Media Player COM component.
To do this you need to use this Right Click – mouse within the Toolbox, and then select Choose Items.

See image:
VS_2015_toolbox_com_001
After that will see this window and just click on COM Components tab.

Use your mouse to select Windows Media Player.
If you want to use another COM component or your DLL file then you need to use Browse… button to add it.
This will should be in the Windows\System32 folder…
Now you can see your COM component into Toolbox:
