How can I determine the GUID from a C++ dll

I have several dlls written in C++.  I have the source code for some but not for all of them.  I need to determine the GUID for the functions in the DLL.

Is there an easy way to do this with standard Windows tools?

I never heard about the "GUID for the functions in the DLL". Can you please advise what are you trying to do.

I am probably using the wrong terminology.

I work with SAP/Business Intelligence programs.  In particular WebI, a database reporting tool.

I can write functions in C++ and make them available to WebI through XML files.  The XML files describe the interface and identify the dll by a GUID.  The GUID can be set in the project.  I have 2 dlls one has the GUID set in the project file the other as far as I can tell does not set it.

The code for these dlls is sample code provided by SAP for use with WebI.  I am trying to use the samples to verify the process so we can write our own functions to call some external APIs we use.

In my C++ project one of the functions includes a project file that has the GUID setting command.  The other function does not have a project file included.  The project file exists but for some reason it is not included.

The zones selected are appropriate.

Knowledge of SAP tools generally will not help with this issue.  99% of SAP users will never even know this capability exists.  It is poorly documented on their site and in the manuals.

I need someone who knows about dlls.

Turns out the GUID I needed was in the properties of the project file
