For more details on this issue, see #578.

Main problem here is that when registering an ActiveX object, a call to Type.IsAssignableFrom will return false, even though the type is castable to the base type.

A complicating factor here is that it might be hard to define a unit test for this, since:

  • normal marshal by ref proxies will properly return true with Type.IsAssignableFrom, and
  • A reliable unit test that creates an ActiveX object, and can be run on any machine (i.e. AppVayor) might not be possible to create.
