Need info on writing VB add-ins in VC++ on Win95

Post by Robert F. Monro » Fri, 12 Jul 1996 04:00:00

Could anyone direct me to documentation on writing Visual Basic
add-ins in Visual C++? The VB documentation makes it clear how to
write one in VB but I have been unable to find any references to
doing it in C++.

I have used the class wizard to create the COleDispatchDriver
derived class from the VB typelib and I know that the project needs
to be set up as an OLE server but that is about all I know. There
are 'connect' and 'disconnect' events that need to be handled by
the add-in and some other conditions that have to be addressed.
Once I get VB to recognize my C++ program as an add-in, I am fairly
confident that I can feel my way through the rest.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

1. Intervideo add-ins

Today, I finally decided to purchase the MP3 add-in for
Media Player from Intervideo.  When prompted on whether I
wanted to get the MP3 pack, the DVD add-in, or both, I
chose the MP3 only since my DVD works fine.  After
installing the add-in, my DVD or the TV on my media
center no longer worked.

The only way that I could correct this was to purchase
the full add-in pack.  What a waste of time and money.  
Beware if you decide to purchase the MP3 encoder that the
system is prompting you to buy!
