[Rd] useDynLib in older versions e.g. (2.10)

Has something changed regarding the useDynLib in the NAMESPACE file in packages? I've written a package that works in e.g. 2.12/2.13 but simply cannot find the dynamic library under windows. The version on CRAN is older than the one I'm talking about and depends on a newer version of R but I want to make the package available to people with older versions.

> utils:::menuInstallLocal()

package 'lassoshooting' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked
> require(lassoshooting)

Loading required package: lassoshooting
Error in library.dynam(lib, package, package.lib) :

   shared library 'lassoshooting' not found In addition: Warning message:
package 'lassoshooting' was built under R version 2.13.0

I'm usually under linux and don't know about the gory details of .dll files.



happy easter!

regards, Tobias
