C# and TAPI(3.1)

Hello experts,

Im trying to get C# to work with TAPI to generate a db search query and popups on certain events.
Ive installed the ActiveTSP to communicate with the Asterisks VoIP server, thats the TSP i want to use.

Lucky for me, i cant even get C# to enumerate TSP's.. Ive tried the tutorial on codeprojects (http://www.codeproject.com/KB/IP/devangpro.aspx) and some similair script on the same site.
Cannot convert method group 'EnumerateAddresses' to non-delegate type 'TAPI3Lib.IEnumAddress[]'. Did you intend to invoke the method?

TAPIClass controller = new TAPIClass();
IEnumAddress[] lines = controller.EnumerateAddresses;
foreach (IEnumAddress line in lines)
    outputBox.Text += line.Name;


I also used the C# Wrapper located at http://www.julmar.com/blog/mark/2008/07/23/ATAPIAssemblyUpdated.aspx but it generated an error.
System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException was unhandled - Message="Index and count must refer to a location within the buffer.\r\nParameter name: bytes"

er controller = new TapiManager("CallerMAX");
    if (controller.Initialize() && controller.Lines.Length > 0)
        outputBox.Text = ("I found the following TSP's:...\r\n");
        TapiLine[] lines = controller.Lines;
        for (int i = 0; i < 8; i++)
            outputBox.Text += i + ". " + lines[i].Name + "\r\n";
        outputBox.Text = ("Nothing found!");
catch (TapiException e)

My question:
- Does someone have a good, easy to follow, tutorial on how to achieve what i want ?
- Does someone know where my mistake is in the above script ?
- If none of the above counts then can someone tell me the best way to achieve my goal ?

To all the experts: Thanks in advance! P.S. My experience in C# is low.
