Expectedly, linking the > dependent application fails because Visual Studio cannot find _imp_foo. Isn't the __imp__ prefix supposed to be in the import library, not in the shared library (a.k.a. "DLL")? And if mylib.lib _is_ an import library, then how did you build it, exactly, i.e. with what MinGW commands?
