1. Write you EMail and i send you.
2. This can make from  C/C++ program. Code:
    HMODULE hDll = ::GetModuleHandle("NAME.DLL");
    if (hDll)
      {
      char buff[101];
      ::GetModuleFileName(hDll,buff,100);
      int  nModule = GetModuleUsage(hDll);
      for (int i = 0; i < nModule; i++)
        FreeLibrary(hDll);
       }
NOTE: if this OWL200.DLL must make loop for nModule -1!!!
Regards, Alex

A DLL cannot be stuck in memory after the program that uses it crashes.

Windows will destory the memory space for that program and that DLL.  There is no way to "unload" the DLL, it basically doesn't exist any more.

Nietod, you are not right. This situation can be in many
reasons and Windows not deleted allways such DLL.
For example, in my programm with OWL (after cratch) rests
OWL200 and after some times i must make BOOT
(function CreateBitmap ended with OWL Exeption).  
Only after solution, that i write in REPLY,  situation OK.
See , too, Previously asked question about use DLL with
VB. (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q.10084649)
After reply on this question i found more simple solution!
