Jeff,
 
I'm having a problem with DLLs on 64-bit Windows.  I am building a DLL that will be called from IDL (similar to calling from Visual Basic).  The DLL must have undecorated names for the entry points.  For 32-bit Windows we have been using a .DEF file to achieve this, and it works fine.  However, when we build for 64-bit Windows the names are undecorated by default, and I get a whole bunch of warnings if I use the .DEF file.  
 
This is in the EPICS extension ezcaIDL.  If I delete the .DEF file then 64-bit Windows builds fine, but the 32-bit build has decorated names and so does not work.
 
Have you seen this problem. Are we doing something wrong?

Hi Janet,
 
No, IDL does not work with the decorated names.  I built with no .DEF file.  That creates undecorated names on 64-bit, but decorated names on 32-bit. 
 
Now I assign the environment variable to the 64-bit DLL and run the 64-bit version of IDL.  It works.
 
H:\epics\extensions_devel\src\ezcaIDL>set EZCA_IDL_SHARE=H:\epics\extensions_devel\bin\windows-x64\ezcaIDL.dll
 
H:\epics\extensions_devel\src\ezcaIDL>"c:\Program Files\ITT\IDL\IDL81\bin\bin.x86_64\idl.exe"
IDL Version 8.1, Microsoft Windows (Win32 x86_64 m64). (c) 2011, ITT Visual Information Solutions
IDL> t = caget('13BMD:m1', v)
IDL> print, t, v
           0      -8.4500098

 
Now I assign the environment variable to the 32-bit DLL and run the 32-bit version of IDL. It fails.
 
H:\epics\extensions_devel\src\ezcaIDL>set EZCA_IDL_SHARE=H:\epics\extensions_devel\bin\win32-x86\ezcaIDL.dll
 
H:\epics\extensions_devel\src\ezcaIDL>"c:\Program Files\ITT\IDL\IDL81\bin\bin.x86_64\idl.exe" -32
IDL Version 8.1, Microsoft Windows (Win32 x86 m32). (c) 2011, ITT Visual Information Solutions
IDL> t = caget('13BMD:m1', v)
% CALL_EXTERNAL: Error loading sharable executable.
                 Symbol: ezcaIDLGetCountAndType, File = H:\epics\extensions_devel\bin\win32-x86\ezcaIDL.dll
                 The specified procedure could not be found.
% Execution halted at: CALL_EZCA         113 H:\idl_user\epics\ezcaIDL.pro

%                      CALL_EZCA         111 H:\idl_user\epics\ezcaIDL.pro

%                      $MAIN$

So the linker must produce the undecorated names for IDL to be able to find them.  That is why we used the .DEF file originally.  What's strange is that the for 64-bits it creates undecorated names by default, and generates warnings if we supply a .DEF file.

Hi Mark,

I think it might be ok for the x86 names to be decorated and the x64 name to have no decoration.
Does the x86 dll work when created with NO def file? I thinks that the x86 decorations are different than x64decorations.

	Something is strange here.  I only get the warnings when I build for windows-x64, not when I build for win32-x86.
	 
	I then tried renaming ezcaIDL.def as you suggested.  The eliminates the warnings.  On windows-x64 the ezcaIDL.dll file looks fine, it is exporting the correct symbols:

	Note the exported names are undecorated.  However, the win32-x86 version is no good, the names are decorated.  These were built on the same machine, same compiler, just changing the EPICS_HOST_ARCH and which vcvarsall.bat file was invoked.  So it looks like the .def file is needed on 32-bit, but should not be used on 64-bit.  Why?

	Hi Mark,
	
	I think you may not need the ezcaIDL.def file.  Try renaming it and
	rebuilding. If that does not work, try removing the the EXPORTS line and
	all lines after it.

		It works, producing an ezcaIDL.dll file that I can use from IDL, but I don't like those warnings.  Do you know how to get rid of them?
		
		Thanks,
