I want to build a plugin for Winodws Media Player (currently using WMP 10) with Visual Basic in Microsoft Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition, but i have no idea how to do it, all i know is that i've got to build a DLL (i think). I just want to be able to grab the current song, artist and playing time at the least. How would i go about doing that

I've searched on the internet and the forum and havn't been able to find anything about it.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

P.S. I should be able to handle the writing of an XML file with this data, i just need to know how to build a plugin that will get the data.

Not sure if VB.NET is the way to go, I see a lot of C++ mentioned. Anyhoo, you might want to start here...
