How D finds windows api calls?

eg. on
extern(Windows) D3DXMATRIX* D3DXMatrixRotationY( D3DXMATRIX *pOut, FLOAT
Angle );
I get Error at runtime:
"The procedure entry point D3DXMatrixRotationY could not be located in the
dynamic link library d3d9.DLL"

Now, I'm using other functions from the d3d9.dll finr, but I don't
explicitly reference the dll..

Can someone point me to some info in dll/winapi topic?

Ok the problem is basically that D3DX is not in dll...
only in lib. A working solution of projet nonagon is to use a wrapper dll
from 3rd source.

Is that true that this lib cannot be used from D?

Wait a couple hours and I'll be releasing nonagon R4. ;) As of .. sometime this year, D3DX is no longer a static lib. It is a DLL. Depending on what version of the SDK you're using, you use a different D3DX DLL (as there have been several updates to D3DX but no new versions of DirectX as a whole.. kind of confusing). For example, nonagon uses the June 2005 SDK, and so it depends upon d3dx9_26.dll. This is a DLL that is installed by the DirectX installer. I'd need a little more information on what version of the SDK you're using, and might suggest that you update DirectX on your machine (the newest is August 2005). Then I can give you a few more tips. Or, you can wait for nonagon, and I can use that as an example to explain it to you.

I've decided to drop D3DX and the needed math functions,
i will steal ... err I mean I will reimplement them in D.

Another call problem is how to call timeGetTime().

I have
#extern(Windows) DWORD timeGetTime();
in code, and
#_timeGetTime 0=start.timeGetTime
in .def IMPORTS

Runtime at the call i get:
"This application has failed to start because Start.DLL was not found. 
Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

I c++, the function declared in mmsystem.h
WINMMAPI DWORD WINAPI timeGetTime(void);

How to call that api?

I still don't know how to call timeGetTime().
But I've found "clock()" in time.d, which works fine.
Altough I'd be curious whats wrong with timeGetTime.
