Loading DLL in an NDIS Intermediate Driver

This is probably a stupid question but I'll ask anyway.

Is it possible to load a DLL, i.e. LoadLibrary, GetProcAddress etc.. from an NDIS intermediate driver?

I don't need to know the specifics of how etc. I'm not writing the driver. I'm writing a library that will be used by the driver. I'd like to not create a static version of it if possible.

There won't be any "automatic loading". Just write a normal DLL. You don't have to do anything special.

Are you asking how to use LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress/FreeLibrary? C function pointer syntax can be tricky.

What do you mean "static version of it"?

A DLL is not "static", it is "statically loaded". That means that an EXE will automatically load the DLL before the EXE starts execution.

Perhaps you could point me to some documentation for what you are doing. I have the DDK if it's in there.

Are you referring to static runtime library vs. using MSVCRT.DLL?

I just don't want to compile a version of the library that can be statically linked in at build time.  I want the user/programmer to load the DLL with FreeLibrary and call the functions with GetProcAddress.  No automatic loading of the DLL.  My DLL not MSVCRT or any other.
