After it's registered, make a reference to it and use it like you did in
VB6. Works for me anyhew :)

Hello lei,
You add a reference to your project that points to the ActiveX obj in
question. (RH Click the reference folder in solution explorer. Choose
the COM tab in the dialog box that comes up and browse to the dll / ocx
that you want.
Vb.net will then provide a reference that you can declare in your code.
eg. browse to say, Winnt/system32/Widget.ocx which has say, a Public
getcolour function that returns the Widgets colour as a string.
Once you have the reference you can:
Dim myWidget as new Widget
Dim strColour as string
strColour = myWidget.getcolour
