In my library GLESDotNet I load the
libglesv2.dll DLLs dynamically via the Win32 functions LoadLibrary and GetProcAddress. I already had everything working via
DLLImport but I wanted to be able to load the DLLs from different subdirectories depending on the architecture.
For the first test I only loaded the
libegl.dll DLL before moving on to the
libglesv2.dll. I made the classic programmer mistake of changing too much at one time. The first call to any function in
libegl.dll resulted in an
AccessViolationException. I couldn't figure out what was going wrong so I decided to revert my changes and try again.
I noticed that when the DLLs were in the same directory the
AccessViolationException went away. Changing the working directory to the directory of the DLLs also solved the problem once the DLLs were placed in subdirectories again. This led me to believe that loading
libegl.dll must be implicitly loading
LoadLibrary along with
libegl.dll solved the problem.
