The program is Linux-compatible, yet uses DLL files? That doesn't sound right.
As another poster mentioned, DLLs (dynamic link libraries) are Win16 or Win32
or Win64 compiled binaries which contain libraries of code used by other
Windows programs.

In other words, they are compiled with a Windows-based compiler (C/C++/VB) and
usually rely on other Windows libraries to function themselves (COM+,
Kernel32/64...) as part of a glorious interrelation which results in one of
them eventually breaking binary compatibility (by use of a CLSID) and thus
causing "DLL-Hell."

As for making a DLL in Linux, I suppose it is possible. Don't ask me how,

Maybe it would help if you mentioned the program in question.
