'function' : inconsistent DLL linkage
Two definitions in a file differ in their use of dllimport.
The following sample generates C4273:
// C4273.cpp
// compile with: /W1
char __declspec(dllimport) c;
char c;   // C4273, delete this line or the line above to resolve

int main()
{
}

Since the compiler complains about the DLL linkage regarding methods, make sure your _class_ is declared correctly, e.g.

#ifdef _BUILD_DLL
#define DYNLINK __declspec(dllexport)
#else
#define DYNLINK __declspec(dllimport)
#endif

class DYNLINK CPaintHook {

//...
};

and set

#define _BUILD_DLL

when creating the DLL. This will ensure that the compiler "sees" the correct linkage.
