Based on user feedback in particular this thread:
v2195 recompilation...

And the fact that we have seen issues raised over time from custom studies developers with managing custom study DLLs for users with changing Sierra Chart versions that require custom study DLL updates, we realize we need to implement much more advanced loading of custom DLL studies.

In the next release, Sierra Chart will support more advanced DLL loading management.

This will be the format for a custom studies DLL file name:
Example: [DLLName]_[optional_4_digit_numeric_version][optional _64 suffix].dll

So you can install DLLs with different version numbers to match up with different Sierra Chart versions where there has been a change requiring an updated custom studies DLL built for that version or higher.

Sierra Chart will then search for all of the different files which match to a particular DLLName and examine the internal version number (not the version in the file name) of these files and load the appropriate one based on the particular Sierra Chart version the user is running.
