If you want to call VB from managed code, you can do this exactly by the same way as from VB client. Add reference to VB Dll to the project, create VB class instance and call it's methods.
To call VB from unmmanaged C++ you need to implement COM client code. See #import precompiler directory.

Or if your function is in VB (not VB.NET) you must export it as COM.
