I would like to get the DLL file that goes with the help example sample for  the function :

CallDLLFx(szDLL, szFunction, IvValue, svValue).

The help says that this INstallShield functionis going to interact with a DLL function :

LONG APIENTRY Test (HWND hwnd, LPLONG lpIValue, LPSTR lpszValue)

thank you,

( I dont know many things about DLLs)

What exactly do you need to do? Calling a function from a dll in most cases is fairly simple.

thats OK nox, I was trying to get a sample to insert in a DLL to run the Example provided by visual Studio for CallDLLFx, here is the answer (simple, it's true) :

LONG __declspec (dllexport) FunctionToExport (HWND hwnd, LPLONG lpIvalue, LPSTR lpszValue){

hwnd = NULL;
*lpIvalue = 007;
strcpy(lpszValue,"Let See");
return 0;

thanks anthony anyway!
