"Shadowing" a DLL on WM5

I'm writing a utility for WM 5 that is basically an installer utility to eliminate .cab files. It takes as input a directory containing possibly:

.exe
.dll files
and a . reg file

It read the .reg file and applies the registry settings in it, and then it copies the files to the proper folder.

My question is this. Why trying to copy a dll file to /Windows on the device, if the DLL already exists, I know there is a way to "shadow" copy the file so that the new DLL is used when the device is reset. Can anyone point me to an API to do this, or give me some advice? Thanks,

Suneet
