You should be able to drop them in the same dir as the executable (is
the exe also on your local drive?).

No it is not--that's why it needs to look over the network for the other libraries.



In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.
