This only works on remote file systems, so you just have to send someone a link to a text file. There would be no indication that a DLL even exists on the target FS.

This apparently works on local directories also. However, either on remote or local, you have to set the working directory before making the "open" action.

Therefore I am not sure a direct link would do the trick (can you change the working dir using an URL and then point to the file ? I m not sure)

Anyway, the DLL does not have to be visible for the trick to work.
