I use +file and +dll [I think]
I've never done +loaddll
Do a simple grep in the wine src and you can see the channels that

No, wine loades DLLs very well.

At the time I was trying to do this, I  seach alot and

I finally gave it up...

I believe that expert wine programmers with the relay can pinpoint the
