Can an egl service call a dll?
I assume you mean specifically an EGL service part calling a function in a
dll. Yes. There was some discussion of that on the EGL café just
One link I found describes call the dll more or less directly from EGL:
Additionally, the EGL functions Syslib.callCmd() or Syslib.startCmd() can
call a Windows exe. So you might even be able to write an exe in VB that
declares and uses the dll and call that using callCmd() or startCmd(),
though I admit I haven't tried that.
Best of luck,

Can an egl service call a dll? Our phone system has a DLL that can be used
to initiate calls and such. I would like to utilize that if possible.
