Currently Rev does not have built in support for COM, although there 
are alternatives:

1) If you are so inclined you can build a Rev external (DLL).

2) If there's already non-Rev DLLs available you want to be able to 
use, you can connect to them using VBScript an implement them. A tip on 
how to do this is here:

(BTW, that tip also explains the difference between a Rev and non-Rev 
DLL.)

3) You can use VBScript by itself, if the app you're trying to 
communicate with supports it. Examples are here:

4) You could use socket communication, if the app you're trying to 
communicate with supports it.

Hope this helps,
