Call VB6 forms from VB.Net

I have a very, extremely large vb6 system that there is no way to convert all at once, We are creating new apps in vb.net and maintain the old in vb6.  We could shell out to the standalone .exe, but we have many exe with a lot of forms. It would be great to be able to open the forms in vb.net.

Please the option of just taking the plunge and converting is not possible

The only way I know of means you adding functionality to the vb6 app such that you pass a command line parameter to instruct it which form to open.
eg.
OldApp.exe Form1  to show form1
OldApp.exe Form2  to show form2
and so on.
