Approach 4 worked well for me so far.
Declare delegates, then use an abstract class for dlopen/LoadLibrary,
based on OS.
Write once - use infinite times.

The real question is:
Do you have write access to a temporary directory, and can the
webserver-process read from there ?...

As to the large executable size:
You can also just embed a link, and then download from web instead of
The only probelm is this requires permissions to do so (user, firewall),
and it just takes longer.
Plus you have to create a download system + have a server running with
the content for download.
