I now beleive thet the problem i described accured
because i made a 32bit DLL and tried to use it with DELPHI 1.0
which is 16 bit.

After making a 16 bit DLL, i keep getting , at run time, when
DELPHI is trying to LINK the DLL, a "can't find file" message.

The code looks like thet:

     .
     .
     .
  function CreateDiffJpeg (a : Integer):Integer;
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }

  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

  index : integer;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}
function CreateDiffJpeg ;  external 'diffjpeg.dll' index 1;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin

     index := index +1;



end;

end.


Any idea ?

In the Delphi Program link the dll-call like this:function ComInit (Handle: Integer): Integer; cdecl; extern "testdll.dll" index 12;
It is very import to supply the index, I couldnt manage to linka DLL with the Name. You can get the Index e.g. in B C++ 5.0by using IMPDEF. Now you can read the indexes in the .DEF file.! Indexes may change when recompiling the program.* cdecl =>  C-Stack-Handling

In the C++- DLL:
Declaration as folowing:
#ifdef __WIN32_DLL__
  #define exp __declspec(dllexport)
#else
  #define exp __declspec(dllimport)
#endif

int exp ComInit (int Handle);

(tried in MC C++ 4.0 , should also work with Borland C)

There might appear problems, when you link a DLL thats links another DLL, the DLL might be loaded twice.Gregor

I am sorry, but the problem was in the C DLL :
It seems thet there must be two functions (except my regular code) : the WEP exit function (in 16 bit DLL) and an EntryPoint function.
