Yes and no.  You can create an activex DLL, but it's not the same as a DLL like you're used to.

You will have to add a reference to it in your application, and use it like you would a class object.

Languages that will create a DLL to be used like kernel32 include C++, Delphi, and PowerBasic's PB/DLL (http://www.powerbasic.com/pbdll/)
