I thought of that, but your going to end up invoking more crap I
really think you don't need. This is a failure case after all.
Explorer is not running at this point so that means you have to start
it, then you could to send the messages which would be the simplest
form of IPC to it which is going to delay load user32 anyway so it can
display the message box...Its better just to do the equivalent of
LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress in the loader from a helper function and be
done with it.
