Question Can I access a Windows DLL directly from Linux code?

Hi all!

I'm thinking about doing some development on a music player in X (coded in Qt to be precise).

Anyways: I found this totally cool Windows DLL, which holds some nice visualization code that I want to use. (I know the actual interface that the DLL implements.)

This leads me to my question: Can I execute code from this DLL directly from my Qt application (assuming that the DLL matches my current CPU instruction set (i386))?

Any ideas?

Nope, you will have to rebuild the lib as a .so
