Making a COM DLL

I have  a third party DLL which is not COM enabled, so I decided to make my own DLL which would be COM enabled and pass through the calls.

I have referenced the third party DLL, created the constructor methods, and all of the pass-through functions. I am need some help with what to do next to make sure this is built correctly so it will be usable from Excel VBA.

Generally yes, although with the newer version of Visual Studio its a bit different. I managed to create the DLL, but the issue now is that I am having a hard time with passing through arrays, but that's a different question. Thank you.
