 Unfortunately I have no solution but maybe a hint. I have a similar
problem. I try to build my own DLL with cygwin32 and use it with VC++5.0.
Everything works fine except when I try to use functions like malloc or new
inside my DLL. The problem seems to be that a Win32 DLL does not have its
own heap.
Does anybody know how one can declare a own heap segment for a Win32 DLL so
it's possible to allocate memory with malloc and friends?
