Recently I got strange situation in our application. We have two different classes in .NET that exposed to managed code via COM interfaces. Both classes look very similar but one class by some reason supports IDispatch while another class does not. We have piece of code that work quite differently depending on IDispatch support.

Here is some data. First class looks like this:
[ComVisible(true)] [ClassInterface(ClassInterfaceType.None)] public class Foo : BaseClass1, IDisposable
Second class looks like this:
[ComVisible(true)] [ClassInterface(ClassInterfaceType.None)] public class Bar : BaseClass2, IMyInterface
IMyInterface declared like this:
