So I can call it's functions by old-fashioned Declare Function XXX in "yyy.dll" ...
It must be something trivial, but I cannot find it :(

You should be able to do this with C++.Net (unmanaged), but not with C# or VB.Net because they only produce manage code, which means it runs on top of the .Net framework, and so are not standard win32 DLLs.
