QuestionRegistration Free Com in Excel Pin

Hey Everyone, I have been searching the web for days to try and find a potential solution to my problem, and so far I have only gathered bits and pieces of a potential solution. I need to be able to make API calls to a CAD program from an Excel macro. The CAD program is called NX. It was developed by Siemens. They have an API called NXOpen that was written in VB.NET. I have tried referencing the appropriate DLL in Excel, however the DLL is not registered and nor can it be in my limited development environment. I do not have registry access. If I am able to pull this off I would like to distribute the workbook to my co-workers as well.

So I have been exploring the possibility of using Registration Free COM in Excel 2010 (Windows 7 64 bit) to make the API calls I need from Excel. To try and do this I was going to use the following code to instantiate an object that points to the manifest for the NXOpen.dll file. I want to access a subroutine in the DLL called "Highlight". Also, from what I have read I will also need the dlls CLSID to reference in the manifest as well. That I don't know how to get. Any help would be very appreciated. Thank you.


VB.NET
Sub EXCELNX()

    Dim actCtx As Object
    Set actCtx = CreateObject("Microsoft.Windows.ActCtx")
    actCtx.Manifest = ThisWorkbook.Path & "\NXOpen.dll.manifest"

    Dim myNX As Object
    Set myNX = actCtx.CreateObject("Highlight")
   
End Sub
