There are two ways of using DLL
1.Create lib file from a DLL using either utility. Usually DLL is shipped with this file. Add thislib file to your project.Include header file containing functions exported from a DLL.This file is also usually shipped with a DLL
2.Use LoadLibrary to dinamically load DLL into memory and GetProcAddress to resolve function address. Then you can use function via the pointer obtained. You must cast function pointer returned by GetProcAddress to your function pointer type.
