  Ah, you ran into this problem:


"Note that this will only work if the DLL is not stripped. Otherwise you
will get an error message: "No symbols in foo.dll"."

  So, there is no debug info in the DLL.  In that case, you need to get the
list of exports to make the .def file some other way: perhaps you can run
'pexports' on it, or in a last resort DUMPBIN, and you may need to do some
hand-editing of the .def file that results.  See here:


Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
