See more: C++ VC++

I am trying to convert an console application (.exe) to VC++(.dll) which is to be used in the MFC application.

Is anyone having an idea of this. Please help me out.

Thanks in advance.

Why do you want a DLL? If you don't have to use a DLL then dont do that, there is so much hassle with it compared to code/static lib compiled directly to your program. If you havent used any DLLs up until now you might have a lot of trouble with it (separate heap for your exe/dll and sometimes separate CRT libraries, and so on...). Use a static lib instead if you dont have to go with a DLL!

Nobody knows what happens with your exe. But the best way seems to use "copy'n'paste" into a dll project and do the exe-main-job on DllMain.

What about reading the documentation ("Walkthrough: Creating and Using a Dynamic Link Library (C++)"[^])?
