Thanks, Corinna. I'll give it a whirl.
The workplace is pretty fastidious about the procedure by which off-site stuff
is brought onto the on-site network. Is "exchanging the DLL" merely
overwriting the DLL file with the new one? The import procedure is somewhat
less arduous than if I have to create a package directory (which I am less
familiar with for updating rather than installing).
