The WinSxS directory holds Windows Side-by-Side DLLs. WinSxS allows multiple versions of the same DLL (code libraries) to exist on the same system. This ensures that every application will get the DLL version they were tested and designed for. The result is improved application and system stability. See details for full directory location.
