mklink needs admin rights. I'd also have to call it for every single file at which point I could just copy those files instead of linking them.

mklink /d , and have the program look for that folder.    I use mklink /d to link my user folders from my spinny disk to my user profile on my SSD.

However that does leave the problem of admin rights.  I mean, you could prompt for it, and have the description of the ReShade mod state that it will need admin permissions.

Wait, can you link to a dll in a subfolder as long as the .exe is in the parent?  if not this wouldn't work.

No, that doesn't work. The .dll has to be in the same folder as the .exe.
