You are still not understanding the main issue: the launch path is different
both when using the full path to the exec (no crash) and when using the symlink

If the program would use the launch path then also the non-symlink variant
would crash, wouldn't it?

Using mklink on Windows 7 does not cause a crash when loading the DLL:

   C:\>mklink heidi.exe "c:\Program Files (x86)\HeidiSQL\heidisql.exe"
   symbolische Verknüpfung erstellt für sex.exe <<===>> c:\Program Files
