DLLs and String arrays

I am writing an ATEasy DLL which, inturn calls another.
The 3rd party dll function has the following arguments.
( int ncnt, char** inst, char* res ), where ncnt is number of strings in inst.
I have the following message from ATEasy compiler :
Warning : ATEasy not support calling function with array from external application use DWord type and MemoryCopy instead

Can you please show me how you would handle this? thanks.

Re: DLLs and String arrays

Here is an example:

adw[100]: Dword
as[100]: string

for i=0 to 99
    as[i]="abc"  ! fill in to allocate string
    MemoryCopy( &adw[I] , &as[i],  4)  ! copy the string array address

MyDllFunctionCall( … , adw, …)

Note: the DLL function array of string parameter is defined as Val Dword[] instead of Val String[].
