    On Windows you need to call LoadLibrary function and pass path to curl.dll, on Mac OS X and Linux we either load the default library in /usr/lib/libcurl.so or you load a specific version you tell the plugin.

    On linux still a few libraries must be installed like ldap library.

    On linux we use the installed curl library.
