First of all, on the C++ side you need to declare the function as extern "C" to dissable the name decoraton.  Like
extern "C" int F(int i)
{
 return i + 1;
}

You also need to declare the function on the VB side so that the correct parameters are passed to VC.  I can't help you there.

See my answer to this question in the VB area.
basically, you need
void _declspec(DllExport) _stdcall CFunction(paramlist)
Also you need the DEF file:
LIBRARY
    dll-name
EXPORT
    CFunction

In VB then you declare it as
declare sub (or function) CFunction lib "Whatever.dll" (paramlist)

and call it from VB as any other VB function.

declare
