VB Express 2005 & AutoCAD 2002

I am starting to play with VB Express 2005. Can someone point me to some
sample code to fire up AutoCAD 2002 & MDT6. Things seem to have changed
alot since I learned VB6. I am making a custom DWF viewer, the only thing I
need from AutoCAD is to fire a DWG path at it and have it open.

Back in the VB6 days I used this code all the time.

On Error Resume Next
Set AcadApp = GetObject(, "AutoCAD.Application")
If Err Then
Set AcadApp = CreateObject("AutoCAD.Application")
If Err Then
MsgBox "Could not connect to AutoCAD"
Exit Sub
End If
End If
