Chrome Early Loading Framework (aka ChromeELF)
chrome_elf.dll is shipped in Chrome's version directory to ease updates,
and is loaded early in chrome.exe's lifetime. This is done by turning the
version directory into a private assembly which refers to chrome_elf.dll
In an ideal world, this would be done by embedding an application config in
chrome.exe that would refer to the proper version directory via a
probing\privatePath attribute (
This would allow us to refer to dlls in the version directory without having to
make the version directory itself into an assembly. It would also avoid naming
conflicts (as the WinSxS dir and GAC both take precedence over private
assemblies when searching for dlls). Unfortunately, the probing\privatePath
attribute is only supported for Windows 7 and later.
