All DLLs are not COM DLL. You cannot register non-COM DLLs. This DLL is a pure DYnamic Link Library and to use it you must use Declare statements into your VB app.

Actually looking a little further, neither of these functions are supported in win9x/me/ce only in NT/2000/XP I am afraid.

seems to suggest that 98 doesn't support the function.
