libvlc.dll is linked at build time, which means that LoadLibrary() is
performed automatically by windows when axvlc.dll loads.
regarding your problem, they are 2 issues you need to consider when
- ABC.dll cannot be found because it is not reachable from PATH or
isn't in the same directory as loader (.i.e AXVLC.DLL)
- ABC.dll has external dependencies (i.e it needs to load DLLs itself)
which cannot be found
you will need to examine the error from GetLastError() to find out
