I understand what you are saying, but if developers are using my headers and
my import library to link with my DLL, wouldn't they always be importing by
name? I don't know anything about the import by number method. Why is it
ever used? How is it used? More info, please...
Anyway, I hope at least the information in my message about the alternate
way to build DLLs helped you.
