I think the import hooks were changed on win32 so that DLLs are never
loaded. I don't remember the exact reason but most likely it was to
avoid backdoors (e.g. DLLInit) that would install and tamper with BF's
code without alarming PunkBuster on the client side.

I believe the change in question is entirely in the win32 import
implementation (the DLL resolver). Almost all extensions are
statically linked to the shipped DLL rather than kept outside in
separate DLLs.

Hope this helps to clarify the situation,
