On Windows, LoadLibrary will search all directories in PATH, the 
current working directory, and the directory where the executable is 
located looking for a library if no path is specified, so they don't 
necessarily have to be in any given directory to be loaded.  This is 
the "recommended" way to search for a library on Windows, you ask the 
OS to load it.  If it fails, it doesn't exist, or just can't be found.
