I've been looking all over the net with no luck. Maybe someone can help me here? I need to make a DLL in Visual Studio 2005 C++ Express Edition, but I don't see any project defined for it. Why on earth would they leave out a project define for such an important part of windows programming??? Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure whether you can do it on the Express edition but try this:

1. Make a new Win32 or Console project.

2. In the following application wizard go to Application Settings

3. Select the dll radio button.

You will probably want to also make it an empty project.

Yup, that works (Win32 project anyway, don't know about console project). Assuming you followed the instructions to enable Win32 applications.

I was under the impression that there are some things that the express edition can't do, however i wasn't sure if libraries was one of them.
