Create two projects in ONE solution.
Project 1 = VB.NET
Project 2 = C#

Then simply call in either direction. VB.NET and C# are totally compatible, just not in the same project. Two projects, ONE solution.

If you compile your VB.Net code into a dll and include the dll as a reference in your C# code and use the name space that your vb code is in then you would simply instantiate the class that the function is in and execute the function on that class...
