I get rid of the Entry directive but when I compile it the start of the code is still EXPORTED.

How to I make a DLL where the start of the code isn't exported?

format PE GUI 4.0 DLL
;entry start
Exports a NameLess, OrdinalLess with the address of the start of the code.

Entry address not exported, its just entry point for execution, and I think you cant delete it. If you not need for entry just point it to return alone procedure.

The program the DLL is for "mIRC" will not work if the DLL has an entry point.

NASM lets you compile DLLs without exporting the ADDRESS of the BEGINNING of the CODE. Why can fASM not do this?

As Dilshod told, you've confused different notions. The entry point is not exported, since it's not present in the export table (unless you put it there intentionally). What you're talking about is the entry point field in the PE header. Indeed it might be considered a bug, that in case of DLL fasm defaults the entry point to the beginning of first section if none is specified. I have fixed it in 1.59.9 - the default for DLL is now no entry point.
