A MySQL Storage engine requires functions that MySQL provides. Therefore, you normally need to link it into mysqld-core under Windows because mysqld.exe doesn't export all required functions (because it's an .exe, not a .dll). So, you're unable to import the required functions in our Plugin. Learn a possible way to circumvent this limitation by using the .map files that are provided with MySQL.
