if you get them to write it as a COM object ( or .NET for future use) then
you can use the "ActiveX Control" mechanism and use the object inside
of VEE. (See the examples under the help menu). At that point it is part
of the VEE program and can be on panels, etc.

A DLL isn't "executed" per se but rather become spart of the program at
run time.
