A DLL is similar to a static library; it doesn't need a main function and you need to use different linker flags when linking the code, to specify that it should be a DLL instead of an EXE. You'll need to read your linker documentation to find out how to do that.

So you shouldn't ever be able to link DLL code successfully as an EXE; you should always get an "undefined symbol: main" error.
