EVALUATION The crash is in atlcomcli.h when it's trying to AddRef() on an invalid pointer. CComPtrBase(_Inout_opt_ T* lp) throw() { p = lp; if (p != NULL) p->AddRef(); } The cause seems to be the m_ppUnk of CComDynamicUnkArray became invalid due to its destructor was called in atlcom.h ~CComDynamicUnkArray() { if (m_nSize > 0) free(m_ppUnk); } after the m_vec was returned from the IConnectionPointImpl2 class which subclasses IConnectionPointImpl (see AxBridge.h). In CAxBridge:OnNotifyEvent, after the first call below: int nConnections = getVec().GetSize(); the ~CComDynamicUnkArray() was called before entering the for loop. A fix is to avoid returning m_vec to the caller.
