Hi Mateusz,
  I am Daniel, I have been studying how to import a Dll with PInvoke
  from Compact Framework.

  That´s ok. I have my dll compiled for Pocket Pc. Your e-mails have been very helpfull to do that.

  When I deploy my application in the emulator I get the following
  exception during the execution:
  "Can't find an Entry Point 'DBFCreate' in a PInvoke DLL
  I have done "dumpbin shapelib.dll /EXPORTS" in the VS2005 command line and I get the following result:
Section contains the following exports for shapelib.dll
 00000000 characteristics
    44EE10C5 time date stamp Mon Apr 24 22:02:37 2006
        0.00 version
           1 ordinal base
           0 number of functions
    0 number of names 
           1 number of names

That thing means that shapelib.dll has no external 
functions I can use.

I think I have to declare the methods I am going
to use like extern in the C code.

What do you think?
I am no good with C code, can you tell me how to do it?
Do I have to declare them like extern in the prototypes?

Can you help me?
