Assuming that you want to create a regular, unmanaged DLL (not .NET), you should choose to make a Win32 Project in the New Project dialog. In the Win32 Application Wizard, go to the Application Settings section and choose DLL as the application type.

If you want to create a .lib with your DLL you have two options. You can add __declspec(dllexport) to the items you want to export into the library or you can add a .DEF file to your project with the symbols you wish to export. Keep in mind that the former option is a lot easier if you're working with C++ because of the C++ name mangling.
