Is this what you meant?

> Windows NetworkEditor installer installs the plugins but they are not

> Possible solutions:
> * The program launcher lnk sets the path before launching the app
> ** My ideal solution, but no idea how to do that in windows. Anyone?
> * The installer adds lib/plugins in PATH environment so that the required dlls

> ** Adding a nsis library and using it 
> http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Path_Manipulation
> * Install the plugins into bin, but requires further filtering in order not to 
> load non-plugin dlls in that directory
> ** Filtering by present symbol is nice but I do not know whether lazy load 
> works in windows.
> ** Filtering by name patters is weak but could work
> Does anyone know how i can build an launcher (menu or desktop icon) so that it
