In Professional 7 you could call Win32 and COM dll's. Is this still the same in DevStudio 9?

What about a DLL (Class Library Project) in .NET can you call these in DevStudio, or would you have to use the regasm.exe (Register Assembly) utility to enter the type infomation into the registry so it can be called like a COM object?

Thanks

Yes.

My understanding of .NET DLLs is that only other managed code can call into them, unless something like regasm is used to register them.
