    Any Dll Entry Point

    Specifically, is it really impossible to find out entry point of any dll whose documentation/data sheet is not given?
    Actaully i am looking to wrap a dll of the known micro$oft's messeging client for dot net. Can i find the list of public functions, so i could use it in c++ or wrap it for dotnet $ee sharp.
    Should i go for disassembler, or there exisits any tool to findout the entrypoints.. or i can find the datasheet for file sharing api for m$ live mesng(fsshext.8.5.1302.1018.dll)!

    Kindly direct me for getting started...

    depends.exe

    I've used depends.exe to find functions exported in a dll; though it's intended to solve "dll-****" by finding dependencies of a specific module, it also lists exports of specific modules.

    If you have an older version of Visual Studio, you may already have depends.exe. Otherwise, it's available (free, I understand) here:
