I think it will find both win and win32 in the IDE at the moment. I have just submitted patches. It’s bug 20991.

These are VS toolchain versions. v140 is 2015 and v141 is 2017. I’m not sure if dynamic in that path refers to it being a dll v lib or the CRT linking. If there’s a folder with static/libsodium.dll then use that. It may be that resolves your issue with v141...

Ah, well, I’m not as smart as Mark so I just let everything that’s not in the engine default to unsafe ;-)

So you need a buffer as inout for the library to write to? Something like this.
__safe foreign handler MCDataCreateWithBytesAndRelease(in pBytes as Pointer, in pCount as LCUIndex, out rData as Data) returns CBool binds to "<builtin>"
__safe foreign handler MCMemoryAllocate(in pSize as LCUIndex, out rBlock as Pointer) returns CBool binds to "<builtin>”
__safe foreign handler MCMemoryDeallocate(in pBlock as Pointer) returns nothing binds to "<builtin>”
variable tBuffer as Pointer
if not MCMemoryAllocate(32, tBuffer) then
throw “uh oh”
variable tData as Data
if not MCDataCreateWithBytesAndRelease(tBuffer, 23, tData) then
throw “uh oh"
