In order to test your dlls you should know what they do and what their routines are called. Do you?

Yes, I know what is the functionality. It is a request response model.
It reads a message from a MQ then formats it by adding few fields and then writes to another MQ.
I am using IDE Microsoft Visual Studio .NET (Microsoft Dev Env ver 7.1,
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1)

If you know what's in the DLL, then write a program that includes the appropriate header and calls the routines defined in the header to test them. Then compile your program linking it to the DLL and ensure the routines behave as expected.

Ah well there's your problem, then. You need to know what a DLL is. Google will provide many answers, as will MSDN.
