The convention for DLLs is likely to be not C but Stdcall. FYI, one
chapter from the manual:

The name to use on the Ada side when importing a C routine with a
@code{Stdcall} calling convention is the name of the C routine. The leading
underscore and trailing @code{@@}@code{@i{nn}} are added automatically by
the compiler. For instance the Win32 function:

@b{APIENTRY} int get_val (long);
@end smallexample

should be imported from Ada as follows:

@b{function} Get_Val (V : Interfaces.C.long) @b{return};
@b{pragma} Import (Stdcall, Get_Val);
--  @i{On the x86 a long is 4 bytes, so the Link_Name is }"_get_val@@4"
@end group
@end smallexample

Please do spend some time getting a tiny Ada and tiny C program to
cooperate while reading the manual, a lot of people have done this
successfully, you should be able too :).
