help needed VB6 ActiveX dll

Postby martijn » Wed Nov 17, 2010 4:02 pm

Hi all,

I've been looking for a few hours now and then I thought, perhaps someone here might be able to help me out a lot easier.
I'm looking for an activeX dll to controll a Velleman VM110 / K8055 from vbscript (or other scripting languages by use of the com object).

I found 1 version but it didnt expose all the methods correctly which renders the whole thing useless (I cannot switch single relais off with it)
Then i found another forum where someone tried (and did) the same thing.
He managed to create a simple VB6 wrapper dll and posted the source code, but I don't have VB6, nor do I know how to recreate that dll.

I have VB2010 Express installed here, but I cannot find a way to create COM accessable dll's with it.
So my question is: Does anyone have VB installed and could someone perhaps help me by compiling this code for me?

http://forum.velleman.eu/viewtopic.php? ... 93&p=11372

Copy paste from the post in question:
I created an ActiveX wrapper in VB6 and use it in ASP pages, vbscripts and HTML applications (.hta).
Here is the source for the wrapper. I called my DLL USB8055 and the class ZAP8055

Code: Select all
