Description

Called when an application releases a component interface.

_Release is a basic implementation of the IInterface method, _Release.

_Release returns the resulting value of the reference count for the component's interface.

Note: In all other cases, _Release simply returns –1 and takes no action. This allows the component to implement interfaces where reference counting is not required. More sophisticated components should override _Release to implement reference counting.
