Depends on the OS: on XP, the file is replaced immediately.

Exactly. That's what the msi installer does. That way, reboots can be
reduced a lot (even if a program is still running, the update works.
Once the program exits and is started new the new version is there, and
other programs using the dll have the new version immediately).

That's what I was thinking. Maybe there is a way, but I don't know how
right now. I'll think about it and when I find a way, we can implement
it then...
