Compile the Wininet.LIB into MYDLL.DLL

Wininet.dll (from IE4.0, file date after 9/14/97, version 4.71 and after) is not comptatible alone with previous versions of IE (and may be Netscape). So I cannot put this file in my Setup project, but I need its functions.
May idea is to recompile the file Wininet.LIB (file date after 11/13/97) into a DLL that will be exactly the same than Wininet.DLL but with a different name (let's say Inet2.dll). So my program will be the only one to call this DLL and all IEs will continue to work.
Can someone do that for me (or explain me how to do it in VisualC++ 5.0 but I am very new to C++, so I need a very detailed explanation) ?
my email: chiarelli@calva.net
Thanks

The Wininet.LIB is just an import library, which does not have the actual code. The actual code is inside Wininet.dll. So you cannot compile it into a dll. In your case, the recommended way is to require IE4 installed in order to run your application. The other way is to rename Wininet.dll to mydll.dll and use implib32 (http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/5806) to generate the mydll.lib and link with it. I am not sure if this will cause any conflict w/o IE4 installed. Also, I am not sure if this will cause any copyright problem.
