Hi everyone, I have this DLL problem:
Ive made an ActiveX DLL in VB6 which contains several classes. Is there a way to load it from VC++6? It also contains a form. If there is no direct way, how can I make a wrapper? I would need a header containing the classes possibly, but what about the form and the whole ActiveX DLL format?
Please, this is urgent!

Have you tried

#import "MyDll.dll"

?

This will generate the header files you are looking for.

>>does it work for activex dlls?

Yes, it should. At least if they implement the ITypeInfo interface (which VB DLLs AFAIK do).
