But the only way to get a dependent dll found on windows is to have it on PATH, and the scripts directory on windows is on path when a virtualenv is activated.
This is not true. Python loads DLLs with LOAD_WITH_ALTERED_SEARCH_PATH, to allow them to be located alongside the pyd file. You should therefore be able to ship the dependent dll in the package directory (which wheels support fine). Paul
