Testing a .DLL

    Hi, I'm newbie to CppUnit and I'm running into some trouble using CppUnit with a .DLL (I'm using MSVC 6).

    I've created just a basic dll project in VC and added a simple test class, basically in the same vein as the instructions here: https://www.embracetherandom.com/MFCTestRunner/index.htm

    I'm linking against cppunit_dll.lib and testrunner.lib.

    When I run TestPlugInRunner.exe and select my dll from "Choose DLL" an error dialog pops up reporting "Symbol [cppunitTestPlugIn] not found in dynamic library..."

    Here's the code from my test class:
    // TestClass.h: interface for the CTestClass class.

    #if !defined(AFX_TESTCLASS_H__66A29ADF_B786_4AAF_B567_DBE76FE271E8__INCLUDED_)
    #define AFX_TESTCLASS_H__66A29ADF_B786_4AAF_B567_DBE76FE271E8__INCLUDED_

    #if _MSC_VER > 1000
    #pragma once
    #endif // _MSC_VER > 1000

    #include <cppunit/extensions/HelperMacros.h>

    class CTestClass : public CppUnit::TestFixture
        CPPUNIT_TEST_SUITE( CTestClass );
            CPPUNIT_TEST( Test1 );
        void setUp();
        void tearDown();

        void Test1();


    #endif // !defined(AFX_TESTCLASS_H__66A29ADF_B786_4AAF_B567_DBE76FE271E8__INCLUDED_)

    // TestClass.cpp: implementation of the CTestClass class.

    #include "stdafx.h"
    #include "testdll.h"
    #include "TestClass.h"

    #ifdef _DEBUG
    #undef THIS_FILE
    static char THIS_FILE[]=__FILE__;
    #define new DEBUG_NEW

    #include <cppunit/extensions/HelperMacros.h>

    // Construction/Destruction

    void CTestClass::setUp()

    void CTestClass::tearDown()

    void CTestClass::Test1()
        CPPUNIT_ASSERT_ASSERTION_FAIL("Test Not Implemented");

    I'd really appreciate any feedback anyone could give me, I've been looking at this for awhile now and I know I must just be missing something simple.

      I guess I should add that I am wanting to test in a .DLL that already has a DllMain. According to this post http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=1075752&forum_id=37108, and some others, I shouldn't have to use the CPPUNIT_PLUGIN_IMPLEMENT macro, but I'm not sure what I'm missing that is keeping it from working.
