> cvs.exe doesn't. The cvs apis do, and cvs.exe is just a client of
s/cvs.exe/cvs apis/ and the same question still applies. cvsapi.dll
and/or cvstools.dll can easily find out where they live
(GetModuleFileName with the HINSTANCE passed to DllMain), and load the
protocol DLL's from there. Is there a case where you'd want the
cvsapi/cvstools DLL's in one directory and the protocol DLL's in
another? I'm still not seeing why a registry lookup is needed.
