How to create a .tlb file from a .odl file?


I have been given some code to compile, which I am using Watcom to do and create a .dll.

The problem is that when the code tries to compile it comes up that it cant find a .tlb file, which as I have found is a type library and dont have.

I have done some research and found that you can use  MkTypLib.EXE or MIDL.EXE to make this binary file, but I dont have them.

Is there a way to make this .tlb file?

A visual basic file will be reading the .dll, if thats any help.

Will be very greatful for any help.
