Is there an equivalent way of doing SENDKEY commands in VB.NET?

I need to send keystrokes to an application. In VS.NET there is a module for VBScript. But I cannot find any info on running VBScript from VS.NET. Is there an equivalent way of doing SENDKEY commands in VB.NET?
Actually, .NET provides the System.Windows.Forms.SendKeys class. However, it may not always work. If you want to ensure your keystrokes will always play, you may want to get my latest book, Debugging Applications for Microsoft .NET and Microsoft Windows. In there, I developed a pretty nice key and mouse stroke recording and playback application called Tester. You can use the Tester.DLL COM object to do the playback for your application.
