Dynamic Libraries with Delayed Function Loading

, 27 Oct 2011
This article explains how to create a dynamic library that loads exported functions the first time they are used, opposed to loading them when the library is loaded.
#include <stdio.h>
#include <windows.h>

void generate_proxy(const char *dll_name_sz);

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
	printf("Delayed Function Loading Example - PROXY DLL GENERATOR\n");


	return 0;

void generate_proxy(const char *dll_name_sz)
	printf(" Generating proxy for library %s.\n", dll_name_sz);

	// TODO: Put your own customizable proxy DLL generation code here.
	//       You should generate a list of all payload_dll functions
	//       and put them in exports.def and exports.inl following
	//       the formats of these files.
