Does anyone know how to make a DLL in C++ and then use it in Visual Basic? I know how to make basic functions in C, but how do you make it work with VB? I''m using Bloodshed DevC++ 4.0, a free C++ compiler. I''ve seen some things on making DLLs for VB in MSVC++, would it be different in DevC++ ???

If you make the DLL COM compliant then using it in VB would be very simple...just add a reference and you can use all the public objects. I''m not a proficient C++ programmer, so I''m not sure how complex (or simple) writing a COM dll in C++ is.
