I don't know that compiler at all, but the usual cause of crashes like
this is using incompatible calling conventions.  The usual calling
convention for a DLL in Windows is "stdcall", but R uses "cdecl";
since I didn't see anything mentioned in your source, I think you were
probably using "stdcall".

Hopefully your documentation will tell you how to ask for "cdecl".

Once you find this, could you please email me a short paragraph saying
in detail what to do with your compiler?  I'm putting together a web
page showing what's necessary in various cases.   My current
incomplete draft is visible here:
