Yes. Can you describe what type of trouble you ran into? I've created S Function mexfiles, but a regular MEX DLL is pretty much the same.
It was actually easier to get this working with Visual 5 since it defines the BOOL datatype. The mex.h include file is already setup to deal with C++ compilers, so wrapping mex.h in extern "C" isn't necessary.
You will need to define MATLAB_MEX_FILE, include matlab.lib in the project, and use a .def file unless the mexFunction is explicitly exported.
Feel free to contact me directly if you have questions.
