[R] Using (D)COM in Excel

Dear Fellow R-Users:

I am trying to install the (D)COM server, version 0.91.  I followed the
installation instructions all the way through the command lines

       %R_HOME%\bin\StatConnectorSrv /RegServer
       regsvr32 %R_HOME%\bin\StatConnectorClnt.dll

and everything so far seemed okay.  Then I logged out, and ran
bin\vbtest.exe, and everything still seemed fine (it gave me a plot of a
straight line).

Then I went into Excel97, and I wrote the following macro into a module:

	Sub RunStatConnector()

	  Dim x As StatConnector
	  Set x = New StatConnector
	  On Error GoTo Error_Handler
	  x.Init ("R")
	  MsgBox x.GetErrorText, "R Server Error"
	End Sub

and I got a compiler error message that says that the StatConnector
user-defined type is not defined.

Does anybody know how I should go about defining the user-defined type
StatConnector?  Am I missing a step somewhere?  I thought maybe that by
registering it using the regsvr32 command that somehow I've "defined" it as
a type recognizable by Microsoft, but I am not sure.

Thanks for your help!
