    Question using a C# dll in VB6 error: "Can't add reference to the specified file"

    Hello,http://www.vbforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

    I'm new here, this is my first post.
    I am having a problem in using a C# dll in VB6. I cannot reference it.
    VB6 says "Can't add reference to the specified file" whenever i reference
    the dll. Please help. I can't figure out what the problem is.

    Thanks!

    Hey,

    Thanks for the link. yeah my teammate wrote it in C# then I have to use it in vb6. I will let him checkout the link and let him check if he has any error. all the while i thought the problem was on VB6 side.

    thanks again. I will give feedback once it's already resolved. =D

    I've already registered my tlb but there is still an error that says,
    "ActiveX component cant create object".

    i have already declared it as

    Global fileCheckSum As New checksumcalc.MyCheckSumCalc

    and then

    Set checkSum = fileCheckSum.MyCheckSumCalc
    MsgBox (fileCheckSum("C:\Fact"))

    Am I missing something?
    I cant seem to make it work. please help.

    Thanks!
