> Comments?  Windows/DLL perspectives?

DLLs are normally searched for in this order (from memory so I may have left
one out...):

1. the directory where the .exe file is located
2. the windows system directory
3. the windows directory
4. the directories on the PATH

For DLLs that are dynamically loaded, like Python extension modules, you
specify the whole path to the DLL.
