Call Cookie Helper from VB6

May 4, 2009 at 4:46 PM
I have an Outlook Addin that is written in VB6. The Addin can be configured during installation via cookies sent from the insalling web page. With Vista I am unable to access the low cookies. I would like to use IE Cookie Helper but I have been unable to invoke it from VB6. Can this be done and if so can you provide a code sample?

Thanks, John

The easiest approach would be to write a thin wrapper in .NET that calls into the cookie helper libraries and expose that library to COM.  Then you can use it like a COM library in VB6.
