I'll take a guess...
Perhaps when FoxPro uses a DLL, it's similar to when Visual Basic uses one.
With VB, the functions that you export from your DLL must following the
standard calling convention __stdcall, opposed to the C calling convention
__cdecl. If FoxPro is the same, then it's calling your DLL with parameters
in reverse order, AND it's expecting your function to clean up the stack
(opposed to it having to do the work).
I have no idea if I'm right about this, but it's worth a try. Re-export the
functions from your DLL with __stdcall, and see what that does for you.
