Last Modified: 2008-02-01
I have a third-party app that's used to FTP files from our server to theirs.  The root directory of this app contains a ProgAPI.exe and ProgAPI.tbl.
If I drag this .tlb file into my vb.net app and drop it, it exposes some methods within the Object Browser window.  
I tried to reference both of these files, but got errors: "A reference to '' could not be added.  Please make sure that the file is acceptable, and that it is a valid assembly or COM component.

Is there any was to import, reference these files so I could use the exposed methods? If yes, I need to exactly how.
