I know that the DLL's load correctly because everything works fine when
compiles with MSVC 6.0. The DLL I am trying to load (I'm limiting it to
1 initially, just to try and get it working) is in the same directory as
the executable. Also, I have the source for the DLL, and it is
I can't figure out why it's not recognizing it.

Well LoadLibrary() is a windows API call so MinGW won't be doing
LoadLibrary() will look in the same directory as the exe first (see
docs for all places) if no path is specified i.e. just "foo.dll".
Next check the name of the DLL passed to LoadLobrary is correct.
Another possibility is that the DLL itself returns FALSE from the
DLL entry function. So is the DLL working OK? If the DLL depends
in turn on others are they all available in the correct places? Try
copying them all to the same directory 1st. See
com for an extremely usefull tool.
