Hello.
The title says everything already.
I'm working on a DLL that needs to export a Load procedure for it's caller.
But with every
Code:
export  'inventory.dll', Load, 'Load'    
i get an "Error: reserved word used as a symbol" instruction: dd RVA Load (export.inc, line 15). Similarily using only
Code:
proc Load
endp    
throws the same error @ instruction "if used Load" in proc32.inc (line 53).
Is there any workaround to export (&use) a "Load" procedure?

"load" is a reserved word. The error is correct. You can either rename your procedure or rename the "load" command in the fasm sources. But you can't have both together.

Where could I find the definition of Load in fasm sources?

TABLES.INC
Code:
instructions_4:
;...
 db 'load',0
 dw load_directive-instruction_handler    
If you want to take that path then you can make a new name but be sure to sort it alphabetically and in the correct place for the length. And you will have to change it for all new versions of fasm that you download.

Wouldn't it be easier to change your source? Assuming your editor supports UTF8:
Code:
export  'inventory.dll', Löad, 'Load'
;...
proc Löad
endp
