I have never used DLLs.

The DB help states to, "Click INSERT from the Menu, then RESOURCE.."

I can't find "INSERT"

I need to use Irrklang.dll to do some sound recording. It must be run form the folder with the executable.

I have written a test to successfully load the DLL but don't know the correct way to call it.

Help!

That DLL is not a plug-in, which means that you'd need to use the LOAD DLL and CALL DLL commands to load and call it.

Your biggest problem is that Irrklang has a C++ interface to it, which DBPro can't call, directly at least.

You'd need to write an interface to convert all of those C++ style member function calls to C calls for you, then call those. And if you were willing to do all of that, then you may as well turn it into a plug-in anyway.

Summary: Lot's of work, but doable (if you know how to do it).

Thank you for the information. I'm not (currently) capable of doing the conversion and I need to get this running as quickly as possible, so I guess I should take another approach for now.

What exactly is it that you want to achieve?
Does it have to use the Irrklang library?
