Oleauto::TAutomation * Automation;
Automation is for backward compatibility.
Declarations in the Oleauto unit are provided for backward compatibility with Delphi 2 and C++Builder 1. New implementations of OLE and ActiveX have replaced declarations in the Oleauto unit.
Automation is a global instance of the Automation manager class. It serves as the Automation manager for an OLE Automation server written with early versions of Delphi or C++Builder. The Automation manager handles all interactions between Automation objects that have been registered with it and the OLE Automation API.
