I create a Dll using Wizard (A dll that export same symbols). I succeed to call a function of that Dll from a C++ console application. I didnt register the Dll. I want to call a function of the Dll from VBP. for that i should register it. I tried to run RegServ32 with MyDll.dll but i get an error:
"MyDll.dll" was loaded, but the DllRegisterServer entry point was not found. DllRegisterServer may be exported, or a corrupt version of MyDll.dll may be in memory. Consider using PView to detect and remove it."

Don't use in Wizard WIN32 DLL as Project Type, instead use ATL COM Wizard
type. Next use Server Type as DLL.
Build process automaticly will create
DllRegisterServer exportable entry and register your Dll.

If you do not want to have your Dll as COM server, you do not need to register
regualr Dll at all. Just make sure that
function you want call are exportable
(or in DEF file, or something like that
 __declspec( dllexport ) int func())).

In order to call them from VB just use :

Declare Function func _
Lib "mydll.dll" ( _
    ByVal a As Integer, _
    ByRef b As Integer _
) As Integer

I chose to use Dll and not ATL Dll in purpose. it was a mistake to think that i should register that. i solved my problem by creating a DEF file.
Thanks anyway.
