The real DLL-Hell ("sfc.dll"), created by MS
wine.dev at web.de

I verify my work on winspool.drv and localspl.dll with the native
versions of "localspl.dll" in wine.
To my surprise, localspl.dll/XP needs a native "sfc_os.dll",
while localspl.dll/W2K is happy with our buildin "sfc.dll"
- "sfc.dll" was not present before w2k.
- The "System File Checker" API was introduced in win98
(with a different API in "sfcdll.dll")
MS produced the ugliest case of the DLL-Hell on ther own!
Two total different DLL's with a different API, but the same name:
--- cut --
SFC.DLL (13.Nov.1998) in MS Office 2000 Prof
(Starfighter Foundation Classes v1.0 DLL)
sfc.dll (07.Dec.1999) in Windows 2000 Prof
(Windows File Protection)
-- cut ---
And to make the things even worse, the "sfc.dll" from office
has the Version "1998.*"
