Interfacing via VS-2012

Using Windows 7, with VS-2012.
I have registered the DLL, via the command line as administrator and gotten a successful response.
When I launch the API example from either VB .net, C++.net or cscript I get the cannot create activex error message. Nothing more. I have seen this mentioned on 4-6 year old posts, which must have been vb 2010 or earlier versions. Any known issues with VB 12 on windows 7?

can you confirm if you are compiling the examples for 32 bit or 64 bit? A 32 bit app cannot load a 64 bit activeX object and vice versa.

For example, you can use


to run a 32 bit console which should allow the cscript to work using

cscript test.vbs

in that console. If this is the case I can point you to a 64 bit version of the DLL which should function better.
