Error LNK2005: _DllMain@12 already defined

I'm trying to add a dialog box to an existing dl that doesn't have any. When I do, I get "error LNK2005: _DllMain@12 already defined". I've read that I need to delete the existing DLLMain in my project to get rid of the error. After deleting it, I get error "LNK1149: output filename matches input filename...."

How to I get this to work?

or you need to change the out put path of you library.

I started a new dll project, added my existing code to it, and it works now. I don't know what's different from my original project.

Thanks for trying to help me.
