 Under this enhancement, more flexibility will be added to the
 FdoIConnectionManager::CreateConnection() function, by allowing the
 providerName parameter to be a provider library file name or a registered
 provider name. Currently, providerName must be the name of a registered

 When providerName is set to a library, FDO will load the library and
 obtain the FDO connection from it.

 This enhancement adds some convenience for applications that want to use a
 provider that is not registered. As long as the application knows the
 provider's library file name, it will be able to obtain a connection from
 the provider.
