How can I reference an active .exe created in VB6 in VB.NET?

This Content Component encountered an error
How can I reference an active EXE (out-of-process COM server), created with VB6, in VB.NET? Actually, I can add the reference, but it won't compile (it errors out on the dim line). Thanks a lot!
As far as VB.NET is concerned, COM is COM. As it could be any number of things, your best bet is to look at the main InterOp site on MSDN and see how the samples work. Once you get them working, you can look at your particular issue.
