1 Solution
Make a ActiveX dll in VB.
Make the classes public.
Compile it
Copy the DLL to another location
In project properties set compatibility mode to binary and make it point to the copy of the DLL.
Compile again
In Devstudio. Under project, Choose Add to Project, Components and controls choose Atl Proxy generator. Press OK, select the typelibrary of your VB activeX dll. Choose SmartPointer.
Now you will have a C++ class that you can instantiate and that will communicate to with your activeX dll.
