Technically the uninstaller SHOULD be smart enough to handle such a
situation automatically. (*)

(*) Such as by notifying the user to give them the opportunity to close the
process in question before proceeding with the uninstall or by requiring a
reboot afterwards to force the removal of the in-use DLL. (**)

(**) Ref: NSIS "/REBOOTOK" option, "IfRebootFlag" flag and "Reboot"
