Using the CSE DLL from .NET

I see there is documentation for using the CSE DLL from C and there is a COM wrapper.

Has anyone produced a .NET interop assembly?

(I'm most interested in an official PIA, Primary Interop Assembly, rather than a no name brand assembly.)

I spent a few minutes with the type library export tool (in .NET) it didn't recognise the DLL. Worth the effort though.

I would think there would be a way to use the DLL from .NET, but I am not familiar with how that would work. The only officially supported interface to the DLL is the C interface. That's what CSE's editor uses.

As you've found, it is documented here: ... ordll.html

Unfortunately, I do not know of anyone using an interface other than the old command-line way or the C interface.

I generally try to steer clear of interop. The automated tools assume an interface with IDispatch etc. There are other ways to use DLL's, but I'm not going to explore that immediately.

I was hoping for work already done.

The standard interfaces look like the immediate answer.
