How to create an Object of a remote DLL using Visual Basic 2005 Express

By chavdaraju ·
Hello Everyone,

Need Help.

I am new to Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition.
I have good experience with developing database application in Visual Basic 6.

I can create and access local ActiveX DLL / Class Library using Visual Basic 6 and Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition.

My question is....

Is it possible to create an object of a DLL file located on a remote system in my network ?

I tried with Visual Basic 6, but wasn't successfull.
Is this possible with Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition ?
I am using Windows XP.

Thanks.

You could always make the remote object/Dll a Web Service. Once the Web Service is created, add a Web Reference.

Add the dll as a reference to your Web service. You can create the web service using Visual Studio. Create functions in your web service that will call the functions in your dll and pass parameters if any.

Refer the web service from your application.

You will need to install IIS on the remote machine (if not installed) for the web service.
