Yes, it was called VC++, there were 2-3 versions to try and jump 
start it. Eventually it was replaced by a completely native C++ 
header file using modern C++ with smart pointers instead of a GC 
to communicate with COM objects.

The C++ header implementation hasn't seen any major developments 
but it is still their recommended way of interfacing. By the 
looks of it they are focusing more on Rust and seem to be cutting 
out C++ altogether.
