@Charles: Good to hear and thank you very much !
It means my time window is narrowing, lets see how much I can do before the truth surfaces.
Sofar I saw an MDILBinder.exe inside the emulation image, and apparently there will also be an mdilnigenlibrary.dll. Plus, evey managed assembly .dll or .ni.dll has a .mdil PE section, I hope these are related to CrossGen.exe.
Also, I saw a HDRLens.mdil.xap somewhere in the vhd.
