Windows Address Book from VB6

Hi Experts.

I'm trying to access the Windows Address Book (WAB) from Visual Basic 6.0. I have found that MAPI contains some Methods for this, but Microsoft doesn't support them and that will overhead my application with MAPI files.

WAB32.DLL it's the file in Windows that contains the information for getting Contacts information from the Address Book, but I haven't found a VB6 example to use this DLL within VB.

I would apreciate if you can tell me how to get the Contacts information from WAB without using MAPI or other external DLL or file (only with WAB32 library) using Visual Basic 6.0.

Thank you in advance!
