    Hey Jawad... Honestly, I don't use VB 6.0 ( components, and so
    can't give an answer myself... but I would encourage you to post this to the
    VB 6.0 newsgroup (lots of people there give answers), as I think you'll get
    a bigger response there...

    The name of the newsgroup is:

    Hope this helps and good luck!

    In order to use the new DLL, in the new project, you can do it in two ways:

    1. In the new project, add a New Project to the group and open the project
    that contains your DLL, Or

    2. In the VB Menu, goto Project->References and look for your DLL in the
    list of possible ActiveX servers and mark the check box to add a reference
    to your new project.

    But before that, make sure that your DLL project is Instantiable and it is
    registered (using RegSvr32)

    Hope this helps
