DLLs folder on Windows

I'm curious how dlls from the DLLs folder on Windows are being loaded? As they
are not placed in the same folder where python.exe resides I guess they must be
loaded by giving the path explicitly but I'm not sure. I'm asking because
there's no DLLs folder being created when creating virtualenv and I suspect it
should be.

This is a followup to my question "Why doesn't virtualenv create DLLs folder?"
( and to the virtualenv's issue 87 -
"Problems creating virtualenv on Windows when Python is not installed for all
users." (
