Hi haibala,

Actually not ActiveX objects but COM objects. You can develop your COM objects with C# and follow some steps to expose it to not-.net clients. Here's the documentation link:

haibala> Actually I would reccomend not using C# in a VB6 app.  Certainly you *can* do it, but then you have to have the .Net framework installed on the machine.  If you are going to go through all of that trouble then why not just create a dll in VB6 and compile it to binary?

Don't get me wrong, I am a *huge* fan of C# and .Net, but I am also practical.  If your app is in VB6, then use VB6 to improve your app.  If you want to upgrade your app from VB6 to .net, then I would reccomend updating your interface first and dlls/COM components later.

Hi felipe,

Thanks for the information.
Will go through the URL.

Basically I would like to know how do I create "Out-Of-Process DLLs" in C#.Net.
