You do not have to #include "xxx.dll" to access the functions in a dll. When Windows loads the DLL, it will call the global function DllMain(). If you do not write a DllMain function for your DLL, an empty DllMain() version will be generated from the runtime library. So it is ok not to write a DllMain().
