I have added lua51 to the linker information and lua headers to the c++ include path
I have added __declspec(dllexport) to those functions I think needs it

It's not too difficult. VS needs to know where to find the Lua
headers, so you must set this. You then have to make the Lua import
library part of the project as well.

The other 'gotcha' when building Lua DLLs on Windows is to make sure
that the main luaopen_whatever function is exported from the DLL - I
think that's where you either need to use __dclspec(dllexport)
attribute on that function or include a .def file
