Duplicate function definitions

I'm trying to create a Winamp plugin to play an obscure audio format. I started with the in_raw example from the SDK, but when I try to include the code that decodes this format, I get linker errors:
1>MSVCRTD.lib(MSVCR90D.dll) : error LNK2005: _sprintf already defined in LIBCMTD.lib(sprintf.obj)
1>MSVCRTD.lib(MSVCR90D.dll) : error LNK2005: _tolower already defined in LIBCMTD.lib(tolower.obj)

It looks to me like MSVCRTD.lib and LIBCMTD.lib are both defining sprintf and a bunch of other basic functions. So I went into the project's properties->Linker->Input, and under Ignore Specific Library, I added MSVCRTD.lib. This caused a huge number of other functions to no longer be defined. I removed that, and added LIBCMTD.lib instead. That allowed the plugin to compile. However, Winamp loads and then almost immediately unloads my DLL (still called in_raw.dll):
'winamp.exe': Loaded 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\Plugins\in_nsv.dll', Binary was not built with debug information.
'winamp.exe': Loaded 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\Plugins\in_raw.dll', Symbols loaded.
'winamp.exe': Loaded 'C:\Windows\SysWOW64\d3d9.dll'
'winamp.exe': Loaded 'C:\Windows\SysWOW64\version.dll'
'winamp.exe': Loaded 'C:\Windows\SysWOW64\hid.dll'
'winamp.exe': Unloaded 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\Plugins\in_raw.dll'

Does anyone have any advice on how to solve this problem? Is there a way to get Winamp to output debugging information as to why it's unloading my dll?

the linker issue is from your library using a different crt from what is sent in the somewhat outdated project settings of in_raw.

as for the load then unload thing, make sure that the required dll export is correctly defined as extern "C" if you are using a cpp file. you can use http://www.dependencywalker.com/ to make sure the export isn't mangled as that is the normal cause for the plug-in loading to not work.

Thanks, DrO. Starting from an existing project I had that uses the decryption I wanted to use already instead of in_raw fixed that linker issue.

I did remember to extern "C" the dll export, and it wasn't mangled according to the dependency walker. It looks like the issue is that the decryption code already has a way to play this type of file through DirectSound, and that's what's causing Winamp to choke on my plugin. Removing all the references to that stopped Winamp from unloading my plugin, and I should be able to get it playing from here.

Thanks again!
