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.

Public Declare Function NetRemoteTOD Lib "netapi32.dll" (yServer As Any, pBuffer As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function NetApiBufferFree Lib "netapi32.dll" (ByVal pBuffer As Long) As Long

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.
