Yeah, I guess some apps tolerate missing DLLs by loading them manually.
We'll miss a few problems (e.g. apps that delay-load but can't handle
the missing dll) but that's ok.

right, and just not call MessageBox.
Hmm, ideally we would send them to a web page that gave
information tailored to the dll in question, but a MessageBox is
good enough for 1.0.
