Resource file and linking C++ project using winelib

OK. I have solved the problem. I will explain it a little just in case
someone runs into the same 'problem'.
First of all, linking res files in c++ projects works fine.
My problem was that the MainDll function in the source lacked << extern "C"
>> in its declaration. Inside that function the plugin copies the HINSTNACE
to a global that it is heavily used in the source. This signature problem
caused the funciton not to be 'called' and the hinstance finished holding
an invalid reference (my bet is that it was holding the main
application's). Changing that makes the whoel thing work.
Now my question is: how's it that VC++ did not need that?
