Steps in adding a reference to ActiveX DLL (Early Binding...)

Hi, Folks!

I am trying to figure out what steps VS.NET performs in the background
when you add a reference to an ActiveX DLL file. What I do know is that VS
creates a wrapper DLL for the ActiveX DLL using TlbImp.exe and then that
wrapper gets referenced with the /r: parameter when the code gets compiled
with csc. What I would like to know is what naming conventions does VS
follow in naming the wrapper DLL? Where is the wrapper saved? Etc.

My goal is to be able to perform these steps manually without VS.NET.
If someone knows what the steps are or if there is a web site with this
information I would appreciate being pointed in the right direction. Am I
insane? Probably but there is a method to my madness. :)

TIA...
