Subject: [Python.NET] Problem loading vb.net DLL in Python


Hello Everybody

I am trying to load vb.net dll in Python, but its showing errors.

>>> from ctypes import *
>>> dll = windll.Userdll
>>> dll
<WinDLL 'Userdll', handle 1050000 at cade50>
>>> dll_function1 = dll.xml_load("C:\test.xml")

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#3>", line 1, in <module>
    dll_function1 = dll.xml_init("C:\test.xml")
  File "C:\Python25\lib\ctypes\__init__.py", line 361, in __getattr__
    func = self.__getitem__(name)
  File "C:\Python25\lib\ctypes\__init__.py", line 366, in __getitem__
    func = self._FuncPtr((name_or_ordinal, self))
AttributeError: function 'xml_init' not found

Userdll is a dll created in vb.net. xml_load is a function in it. I tried
loading this dll in vb.net its working fine. I accessed in vb.net by
referencing in settings. 
Do we have any such option in Python?
Can I call the class of vb.net dll in Python , so that i can create its
object and access its functions.
Please help me out. I would be grateful to you.
