Yes the customer will shoot you.... this is a microsoft generated problem
insisting that all libs be in a common directory.... totally ignoring
different version support requirements.

You will find that this why 3rd party lib providers will encode the version
# in the dpl name. The only other alternative is to put the dpls in the
same directory as the exe. I have a vague memory of some versions of win-xx
not checking the full path of the dlls and just relying on the basic name to
determine if a new copy should be loaded.
