I'm not aware of a built-in way to convert a VB array to a string (the & operator doesn't
do it), and even if there was, it wouldn't be likely to produce a string in Mathematica
InputForm. You can either stringify your array yourself:

s = "{"
For Each i In ArrayVariable
   s = s & i & ", "
s = Left(s, Len(s) - 2) & "}"

or, better, pass the input as an expression rather than as a string:

link.putFunction "Plus", 2
link.put ArrayVaraible
link.put 2

If you put the expression piecemeal like this (rather than making it into a string), you
cannot use evaluateToOutputForm, and you result will come back as an array not as a string
(but this is probably what you want anyway).
