	You cannot call Windows functions from Linux library or executable. 

	Currently you have 3 options:
	1) Create a Windows application/library instead of a Linux 
	2) Create a winelib application which will require WINE to work but can
access Linux libraries; you will face some restrictions however: for example 
you will need to use Windows synchronization primitives instead of the 
pthreads ones.
	3) Read http://wiki.winehq.org/WinePluginApi and 
http://www.winehq.org/pipermail/wine-devel/2006-April/046779.html for more 
information and implement this yourself so you can use WINE API in Linux 
applications and libraries. This is best solution but it require a lot of 
time and effort.

	Thank you for using WINE.
