calling VC++ dll/exe in VB

how do i call a  VC++ code in VB6?

i have a vc++ code but i need to embed it in a VB application.for that i either need to create a dll or a component.i would be highly obliged if you could tell me the way of converting an already existing VC++ code into a Win32 dll..is there any way so that  i can  directly call a Vc++ exe in a VB program?
thanx

didn't read the article in filex's post but remember that most c++ compilers default to __cdecl, vb uses __stdcall and __fastcall only.
