Well, there was a lot of discussion about this COM marshalling issue
in the capicom alias. Posted solution was dis/reass the COM iterop dll which
i didn't like. Doable but I wanted (and some customers too) "stalk" interop
assemblies with no customizations!
So, I opted for Pinvoke; e.g. for decrypting enveloped data:
(see CAPICOM note at bottom of that page).
