How to call a vb.net windows application from vb 6 application

Last Modified: 2012-05-11

Here is the whole situation.
I am working on an project which will communicate with QuickBooks and do some stuff.
Also this application should be open from QuickBooks Custom Menu.
Till now, I am only able to find how to call an ActiveX exe from QuickBooks Menu.

Here is what I am looking for,
Is it possible that QuickBooks Menu opens this ActiveX exe and then this exe opens my VB/c# application?
Using shell command in vb6
So that I don’t have to make the entire application as ActiveX exe.

I will really appreciate for your help.
