I've had no problems running dlopen() and dlsym() on a C++ library.
Xhedgehog and GNUdius both rely upon C++ objects and functions
encapsulated within DLL's. But the symbols I'm trying to access have all
been declared extern "C". Maybe you should give that a try. Write
functions to access the objects within your DLL and declare them extern
"C", then link to those functions.
