calling a dll

I have program that I wanted to make a dll, but the calling program will be in VB3 and my program is done in VC++ 6.0. I was thinking of making my program a exe and using shell, but can I make it a dll and still use shell on it?

I do not believe you can.

As I understand it the shell command starts another program that runs as a seperate process.  A DLL is designed to run "in process".

You could call functions in your DLL from VB if you declare them.
