Messenger API and DCOM error on instantiation

P: n/a
I don't know if there's anyone who tried referencing and using MSN
messenger API Type Library(COM tab -msmsgs.exe) but it doesn't do
anything on class instantiation and after a while a DCOM registration
error is logged on event log indicating Messenger CLSID.

I try to create an instance using as suggested on some web-docs:
Dim msn As New MessengerAPI.Messenger (no error on designer)

...and using any function of this class does NOTHING and returns error
on DCOM in eventlog's system tab.

I'm using VB 2005 express with .NET 2.0 and MSN Messenger 7.5 is
installed (not Windows Live Messenger, my choice). But this API cannot
be instantiated for some-reason.

Is there a Messenger version-based incompatibility or another COM
problem on .NET?

Also tried referencing and using "Interop.MessengerAPI.dll" with no
luck, same issue.

Note: Current Messenger (7.5) works fine itself.
