Should be all the same. Try importing it as ActiveX.

Register the dll using regsvr32

regscr32 dllname.dll

Then use the 'Import ActiveX' from the delphi component menu.  The long name of the activex thing will be listed there.  The long name will be whatever the author called it, not the name of the DLL.

Another nice way would be to import the DLL as a type library. Select Projects/Import type library, click on Add, select the dll/ocx you want to add, click on Install to install a new unit. That should add it as a new control on the tab page ActiveX.
