No, there's nothing wrong with DLL issue on Windows specifically. It's the way how `raco exe` is designed to work. The executable produced with `raco exe` is not portable to another machine of the same OS without Racket installed. More specifically, if you look at the distribution `raco distribute` produce, it includes essential dependencies for running the application, e.g., the GC lib `libracket3m_a1zjsw.dll`. If you run the executable from another machine where Racket isn't installed, you get (at least) an error saying that `libracket3m_a1zjsw.dll` cannot be found. In fact, I'm wondering if `raco distribute` or `raco exe` is flexible enough to produce a statically linked executable where all the necessary dlls are incorporated.
