Dear experts

I write a problem that would import many dlls files
I find that loading many dll is very time-cost task and user can't get any information because of the dynamic linking start before any code I wrote

So I don't  know if there're some ways to solve this problems, such as change dynamics dll to static link.

But it cost much if there're too many dlls
I wonder if any good methods or software tools accomplish the goal

Thanx  :-)

There are number of ways to reduce Dll loading time:

1) Using the Rebase utility, this prevents memory relocation:

2) Using the Bind utility, this optimizes loading of module import table:

3) Using delay-loading Dll, such Dll is loaded only when first function from it is called:
