Dear Sir,

 I would like to use function Excel4 which is exported by Xlcall32.dll.I tried to load the DLL, but system is unable to load the library and it is giving the error "A dynamic link library (DLL) initialization routine failed.  ERROR_DLL_INIT_FAILED" .I bought "Microsoft EXCEL97 DEVELOPER'S KIT", tried with sample examples in CD which is attached to the book. I didn't get any solution from those examples.
Please send a mail with complete details.
Thanks in Advance

This error mostly occurs when the dll does not have a DllMain-function.
Perhaps you can load the dll with this call, which does not call the dll's DllMain-function:

LoadLibraryEx("XLCALL32.DLL, , NULL, DONT_RESOLVE_DLL_REFERENCES );

hope that helps,

Sorry, there is only one comma before the NULL and of course a closing quotation mark
behind the filename
