can't get my vb6 project to run with MQ

I'm trying to write a VB6 project that uses mqax200.dll.  I have sample code from IBM that looks very solid, but the VB6 project won't run.  The variable declarations work fine, but I get an "automation error" when I try to run the project.  I have the mqax200.dll on the reference list.  I assume something else needs to be on my reference list, but what???  Thanks in advance for your help.
