The DLL wizard is windows only and sets a few specific flags for Windows compilers like MSVC, including a Windows-DLL stub in the code. The shared library allows to create C or C++ libraries and is cross-platform as it does not involve any special (Windows) code / flags.
Compiler logging: Settings->Compiler & Debugger->tab "Other"->Compiler logging="Full command line"
