hmm, i guess this is a bit misleading.
windows will search in a couple of paths (including the path were the
executable resides) to find DLLs required for the executable to run
however, codecs - while technically being DLLs - use a completely
different loading mechanism: files are scanned for in known directories
and then loaded on-demand ("plugins"). this makes it possible to install
additional codecs, and is very similar to Pd's external loading. in this
case, the "put it besides the exe" might work or not (e.g. afaik, Pd
will *not* find externals you put in the same path as pd.exe).

i cannot comment on the original issue.
