Dll, FreeLibrary and Sharemem

Hi

Here is a code that I am trying to call a procedure from a x dll.
procedure Test;
var
i: integer;
Module: THandle;
msg: TPlugProc;
begin
i:=0;
with PlugList do
 while i<Items.Count do
  begin
    Module:=SafeLoadLibrary(PChar(plugInsDir+Items[i]));
   try
     @msg:=GetProcAddress(Module,'MyMessage');
     if @msg<>nil then
       msg;
   finally
    if Module<>0 then
      FreeLibrary(Module);
   end;
  i:=i+1;
  end;
end;

I have problems with FreeLibrary if I add Sharemem in uses clause as it describes in Borland dll project. If Sharemem is not added then it works.
Can someone explain why?
Can it be any problems without Sharemem?
Some suggestions?

thanks,
mha

You only need ShareMem if you share data between the app and the DLL. This includes string types. PChar is okay without ShareMem.

Hi.. :)

Yes I do share data between the app and the dll.
Instead of Sharemem I now use FastSharemem.

thanks,
