I was trying this right now, but I can't even get the exported function

>>> from ctypes import *
>>> l = cdll.msvcrt
>>> type(l)
<class 'ctypes.CDLL'>
>>> dir(l)
['_FuncPtr', '__class__', '__delattr__', '__dict__', '__doc__',
'__eq__', '__format__', '__ge__', '__getattr__', '__getattribute__',
'__getitem__', '__gt__', '__hash__', '__init__', '__le__', '__lt__',
'__module__', '__ne__', '__new__', '__reduce__', '__reduce_ex__',
'__repr__', '__setattr__', '__sizeof__', '__str__', '__subclasshook__',
'__weakref__', '_func_flags_', '_func_restype_', '_handle', '_name']

shouldn't the C functions names be there?
