Handling VB 6 events in C#

I want a C# application to handle events fired by a VB6 application. I have created a test app to demonstrate what I am trying to achieve but the C# app never picks up the VB 6 events.

I have the following test VB 6 app:

Public Event FileClosed(ByVal strFilename As String)
Public Function getFileName()
    RaiseEvent FileClosed("C:\Test")
End Function

And the following C# test app that calls the above code:

    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public delegate void __Class1_FileClosedEventHandler(string strFilename);

        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            Project1.Class1 cls = new Project1.Class1();
            cls.FileClosed +=new Project1.__Class1_FileClosedEventHandler(cls_FileClosed);
        }

        public void cls_FileClosed(string strFilename)
        {
            MessageBox.Show(strFilename);
        }

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            Project1.Class1 obj = new Project1.Class1();
            obj.getFileName();
        }
    }

I can see that the VB app fires the event but it is not picked up by C#. Has anyone any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks

Have you tried doing this so that the instance of Class1 does not fall out of scope. I'm not sure if this is the problem.

        Project1.Class1 cls;
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            cls = new Project1.Class1();
            cls.FileClosed +=new Project1.__Class1_FileClosedEventHandler(cls_FileClosed);
        }
