Using Native Windows DLL's in ReactOS.

Post by FireAlwaysWorks »

I am a software engineering working in quality control. Linux is my main system right now and I use wine when I have to. I am amazed at wine's ability to use windows DLL's to drastically increase compatibility and stability with windows applications.

My question is, How good is ReactOS at running native windows DLL's? Are there any obstacles in ReactOS keeping it from running *any* native windows DLL?

The devs often use Windows DLLs for testing purposes, dropping them in to see if something is broken. The primary limitation is of course if something is screwed up on the ROS side, be it incomplete or incorrect implementations, bugs, or something along those lines.
