This is an issue with Windows, if the file/DLL is already is use.

Yes, but no error message while install and dll leave old after restart also.

Any decent installer has an option to delay the actual DLL install until after reboot to exactly deal with Windows DLLs in use during install.

It is often as simple as checking a check box in the installer program as "replace on restart".

I must shake my head this issue was not immediately fixed and marked closed. Still open after three years. Does anyone audit this issue tracking system?

They finally decided to fix this functionality by removing it.

However, while removed, this functionality is still explicitly advertised in the installer.
