Dealing with DLL Servers

To the developers of PAL,

I wanted to ask, since there is no mention of it in the V2.2 release notes, if you could please give me some pointers how I might solve this myself. I don't mind getting my hands a little dirty to at least work around this issue.

I posted my request here, instead of privately, so that others might benefit also.

Entirely dependent on it

Earlier on I had intended to support DLL servers properly in PAL 2.1 or 2.2, but the more investigation we've done (Mark Sikkema and I), the harder it has turned out to be. The problem is that the registration/deregistration is left entirely to the DLL to implement, and in a handful that I've analysed decently, they've done some quite interesting things. I still plan on putting in the general framework of it in 2.4 or 2.5, but it's going to depend a lot on the way it's implemented in the app, unfortunately. It will not be something which can be automatically detected and dealt with entirely. It will require Intelligence.

What is it you're trying to deal with?
