You may have to create an import library for the DLL. I had a similar
problem and solved it that way.

Look at http://www.emmestech.com/moron_guides/moron1.html for advices
on how to create such a library.

My problem was that the exports in the dll were prefixed with an
underscore. I had to remove them from the .def file before creating
the import library.

Best regards,
