Ok, I do not know what I am doing wrong but I have a new solution that has 2 projects in it. 1 is a cobol program that is compiled as an exe and call the second program, which I have set up in a project as a dll. Under the references in the exe program, I can not add the .dll program. What am I doing wrong?
If this is a native project then you cannot add a reference directly to the .dll project but you can add a reference directly to the .dll file itself by using the browse option of references and navigating to the file.
There are other methods that you can use to make the .dll available to your main program.
Please see the tutorial here for detals...
