 What type of component do Labview developers prefer? COM/ActiveX, C++ DLL, C DLL?

The last time I used labview was about 5 years ago and I have not kept
up with the changes.

I assume Labview can use COM components, ActiveX (COM with a GUI), C
DLL's, and possibly C++ DLLs.  Of these types, which do Labview users
prefer?

Background
----------
I need to develop a component that can be used by both VB and Labview
users.

Ed,

LaBVIEW can use COM/ActiveX components, C dll's and C++ dll provided
that the c++ dll has direct function calls(you can always use a
wrapper dll to call functions inside a class)
As far as what labVIEW users prefer, this is kind of a difficult
question to answer since it is mostly dependant on the users knowledge
of each of those components.here are a few links that may interests
you.
