    You function is probably using cdecl unless you explicitly defined it as stdcall.

    oh cdecl is the default then?

    stdcal stands for standard call, correct?

    what does cdecl mean?

    From the later of the above links:
    _cdecl is the default for C functions, if no calling convention is stated explicitly.
