Referencing Legacy COM via Interop in VB.NET

Hi Experts,

I'm migrating some VB.NET development work to a Vista machine.  As a result, a legacy COM DLL I reference within the code to create an interop interface (SAP library LIBRFC32.DLL) is not compatible with Vista and will not register (hence I can't get my project to build).

I don't really care if the library actually works on my machine (as long as it works on the deployed client), as it's really about creating the COM interop.

Has anyone come across this problem, and can suggest a workaround (apart from ditch Vista!).
