Create an .idl file. MSDN has resources for the syntax of this file.

Run the midl compiler on the .idl file (midl.exe), this will generate
a typelibrary (.tlb) file and c source and header files.

If you don't have Visual Studio, I believe that you can get the midl
compiler by downloading the Microsft Platform SDK (also on msdn).
