Late Bind to a COM Component with VB.NET

In VB6 you could use the CreateObject statement to Late Bind to COM or ActiveX components dynamically at runtime.

You can still do late binding to COM components in VB.NET:

    Option Strict Off

    Dim myObj As Object

    Dim t As Type = Type.GetTypeFromProgID("Excel.Application", True)
    myObj = Activator.CreateInstance(t)


    myObj = Nothing
