You are mixing up concepts of native C and managed C# code... Your  
library is compiled correctly, but the way you are trying to  
reference it is for unmanaged libraries only. To reference a managed  
assembly include the -r:yours.dll switch in the command line and use  
the class as if it were in your "local" assembly to be compiled.
