Likely the component itself has to be automation component, what means it must to implement dual COM interfaces (derived from IDispatch) and to use automation data types (no structures as parameters for example). It is usually true for script languages.

All the COM components derived from IDispathch (Automation Server) can be called from the VB script.CreateObject() function will do the trick.
