You need to use XML comments and generate XML documentation file from
them. Then you just place this XML file in the same folder as your DLL.
IntelliSense and Object Browser help will work then. See
http://www.vbdocman.com/net/help/ind...ntext_help.htm
for more info.

There are several tools that you can use for it, including our VBdocman
..NET.
