Hello all,

I'm still mucking around in DirectDB, and have a bit of a problem : The
DatabaseSession::OpenDatabase method (
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/desktop/oe/oe-idatabasesession-opendatabase )
has an "IDatabaseExtension *pExtension" argument, but not linked to any info
about such an IDatabaseExtension object.  Googeling and DDG-ing for it
turns up ... nothing.

I've also tried seaching for its IID {B58A0F80-0702-11D2-9A63-00C04FA309D4},
and got nothing back either.

Question:
Does anyone (still) have some info about this elusive IDatabaseExtension
object for me ?  I could certainly use it (I could probably extract the
number of methods and count of arguments for each from the msoe dll, but
having names for both would be a lot better).

Regards,
Rudy Wieser
