That clarification seems okay to me. The error message is in load_library in Modules/_ctypes/callproc.c. 

The underlying problem is that the directory of the DLL is only added to the search path (in CDLL.__init__ in Lib/ctypes/ if the caller uses a qualified path. This is an OS limit that we can't avoid.

Also note that the suggestion to use a qualified path won't necessarily resolve the problem, in which case scripts will have to use os.add_dll_directory, and find a reliable way to identify the required directories.
