Thanks.  (You can tell I'm not a windows programmer).

Is there a way to create a .lib from a .dll or do I have to remake the dlls
with some option?

Naturally you can; DLL's are used at run-time (and hold the actual code),
whereas LIB's are used at build/link time (and only hold relocation info).
This is similar to .so vs .a on *nix.

HTH.
