[out] Specifies the type of external connection to the object. The only type
of external connection currently supported by this interface is strong, which
means that the object must remain alive as long as this external connection
exists. Strong external connections are represented by the value EXTCONN_STRONG =
0x0001, which is defined in the enumeration EXTCONN
Passes information about the connection. This parameter is reserved for use by
OLE. Its value can be zero, but not necessarily. Therefore, implementations of ReleaseConnection
should not contain blocks of code whose execution depends on whether a zero
value is returned.
TRUE specifies that if the connection being released is the last external lock
on the object, the object should close. FALSE specifies that the object should
remain open until closed by the user or another process.
The number of connections to the object; used for debugging purposes only.
equals TRUE, calling ReleaseConnection
causes the object to shut itself down. Calling this method is the only way in
which a DLL object, running in the same process space as the container
application, will know when to close following a silent update.
