Mixing D and C - Windows

Thank you both.

I've created a D DLL [http://dlang.org/dll.html], then I've loaded it from a C program [compiled with dmc].
However, I'd want to be able to call it from a C program compiled with MSVC, and I got a link error - unresolved external symbol [link testdll.obj /implib:mydll.lib /out:testdll-msvc.exe]. The LoadLibrary works with both DMC/MSVC, but it isn't 'handy'.?.
