Extract iTunes Art in VB

I never tried to get an album cover from iTunes in VB.

All I know is how to have the VB script returning a value in LiveCode,
by using the variable "result".


Function getAlbumArt()
  Dim tAlbumArt
  tAlbumArt = ""
  result = cStr(iTunesApp.CurrentTrack.Artwork)
End Function

Best Regards,

On the Mac side, I was able to modify the appleScript to extract the album cover art for the currently playing song.  But, I’m having a heck of a time doing this for Windows (VB).  I added this:
