I am trying to refernce a vb6 dll from vb.net.
It should be very easy to do from what I have read but I know vb6 not .NET

I tried:
Dim NewIM As New IMDLL.Sniffer
NewIM.adapter = 1
NewIM.startTrap = 1

and it gives no compile errors however the event that is supposed to be raised is not occuring

I think all you need to do is make sure you're referencing the DLL in the project.

So, right-click on the Project and select Add Reference.  You can browse the DLL (which you should put in \bin) to select.

Try that and see if that helps.

Dim WithEvents NewIM As New IMDLL.Sniffer

Yep.  There is still some left over from VB6 days, heck even QW-BASIC days with the Goto <label>.

Unfortunatly not the problem...I am trying to pass back a struct with three strings.  I read something about needing to include me.hwnd in the function call?  Are there any differences I should know about when coding in vb6 for vb.NET

Could you give me some kind of picture of what you just described?  Not enough information there to make any sense of what you mean.
