   Are you sure they are getting linked statically? The .lib files (i.e.
import libraries) would get created even when building shared libraries.

   What were the exact options used when linking your testsys executable?

   Does your testsys executable start successfully when the plugone.dll
is not present?

   When you look at the build testsys executable using Microsoft's
Dependency walker (depends.exe) or some similar tool, do you see
plugone.dll listed as one of the shared libraries it depends on?
