no, you just have to make it work one time...

go to project->properties (i think, it's called like this)
step through all of the pages you find there, read them carefully and
learn what they want you to teach.
remove all traces of zexy and replace them by helloworld (or whatever)
especially(!) when it comes to the export-function zexy_setup

you should not create a library zexy.dll but helloworld.dll
you have to export *_setup() -function where * is your library-name
