ProgID

A ProgID (program ID) is a programmer-friendly string identifier for a COM component. ProgID's map to class identifiers, CLSID's, in the Windows registry. Typically, ProgID strings are of the form:

<Program>.<Component>.<Version>

For example, STATISTICA.Application is the ProgID of the STATISTICA Application COM object.
