Correct. It's a COM thing. Registering a DLL links it to the registry so
COM can activate it given a GUID.
All very complicated and over-engineered, in my mind, but it does have its
advantages. Yes you just need something like this:
WINEDLLOVERRIDES=quartz=n regsvr32 quartz.dll
and the same for devenum.
