Instead of using the interface, Microsoft suggests you use the SHGetIconOverlayIndex function instead: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb762183(VS.85).aspx, which is quite straightforward to use.

Here's the C# signature: http://www.pinvoke.net/default.aspx/shell32/SHGetIconOverlayIndex.html

It translates to this in VB:
<DllImport("shell32.dll")> _Private Shared Function SHGetIconOverlayIndex(pszIconPath As String, iIconIndex As Int32) As System.Int32
