Comment (by cypherpunks):

 > C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\libssp-0.dll NOT FOUND

 It's not something used to call or changed by Firefox code, and no ways to
 bypass it.
 Windows itself using [http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-
 us/library/windows/desktop/ee872121%28v=vs.85%29.aspx App Paths] from
 registry to search Dlls in registered applications and child processes, it
 violates [http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-
 documentation] Microsoft wrote about paths:
 Note that this does not include the per-application path specified by the
 App Paths registry key. The App Paths key is not used when computing the
 DLL search path.
 And probably fixed in some future windows version, but still working in

 Btw, vanilla updater.exe linked with system libraries only and have no
 problems with Dll search and the current directory.
