Yes, but there are 32-bit and 64-bit exe wrappers, which I suspect is
because a 32-bit exe can't load a 64-bit DLL (and may be vice versa). As I
said, I don't know for sure at the moment, but it needs investigating.

Grumble. Next time the label on the can says "worms" I need to leave the
can opener alone :-)
