the dll is fbclient.dll. To be notified of events you register them
with fbclient.dll - its interface is documented. You need to provide a
call back procedure. Note that event notification occurs in its own
thread and your procedure can only make a copy of the event and act on
it after the dll returns - ie after your callback function completes.
I did provide some links for you yesterday, here they are again

I did find some VB tools here
whether they help you or not I can't predict.
