I am trying to create the Fortran DLL listed in the Visual Basic-Visual Fortran DLL Example project FCALL. I create a new project of type Win32 DLL. I add the code listed in the example and build the project with no errors or warnings. I enter the VB code and when I run it I receive an error 453 saying it cannot find the DLL entry point DLL_ROUT. I have used the dumpbin program with the /EXPORTS switch and all it gives me is a summary (indicating no exported routines?). Any ideas as to why the subroutine is not being exported? Second, should a . LIB file be created for the DLL?
Also, When I select the project type I get three choices; an empty project, a simple dll project, or a DLL that exports some symbols. For the Example which one should be used? The programmers guide is not very helpful.
