I'm sure you know what you're doing, but are you aware that name
mangling is just one aspect in which different compilers' ABI's may
differ? I'm thinking of problems like using different memory managers,
different standard library implementations, etc.

I would think that the "right" way to approach your problem would be
to wrap your VC DLL in a COM server and access that from your BCB

By the way, did you consider asking for advice in the CodeGear
newsgroups? See
