On Windows, there aren't supposed be any problems using DLLs built with
different MSVC versions, because they have binary compatibility. If your
DLL does not even load then the most likely issue when using the latest
compilers is forgetting to embed or include the manifests. After that
the most likely problem is mismatching allocators e.g. trying to Adopt
memory created using new char.
