Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP: The Visual C++ compiler supports a syntax that enables you to declare thread-local variables:_declspec(thread). If you use this syntax in a DLL, you will not be able to load theDLL explicitly using LoadLibrary on versions of Windowsprior to Windows Vista. If your DLL will be loaded explicitly, you must use the thread localstorage functions instead of _declspec(thread). For an example, seeUsing Thread Local Storagein a Dynamic Link Library.
Do not make assumptions about the operating system version based on aLoadLibrary call that searches for a DLL. If theapplication is running in an environment where the DLL is legitimately not present but a malicious version ofthe DLL is in the search path, the malicious version of the DLL may be loaded. Instead, use the recommendedtechniques described inGetting the System Version.
The libloaderapi.h header defines LoadLibrary as an alias which automatically selects the ANSI or Unicode version of this function based on the definition of the UNICODE preprocessor constant. Mixing usage of the encoding-neutral alias with code that not encoding-neutral can lead to mismatches that result in compilation or runtime errors.
