Anyone familiar with Enterprise CUI / .dll Icon File?

Anyone familiar with using enterprise CUI's with the icon .dll file? 

Basically, we have to copy the main dll file so that it's in the same location as the enterprise CUI file and rename it. 

I think this might slow Civil 3D down though I can't be certain.  I can't imagine 70 people accessing the same file all day long can be a good thing. Anyone know more about this that can fill me in? 

Thanks!

When the enterprise CUI (and its resource/icon DLL) is located in a network folder and share by many users, I do not see why it "cannot be good" regardless there is a few users, or 70 users: the file(s) is read-only and only load into AutoCAD once (when AutoCAd session starts), unless you have a lots of users who always start AutoCAD at exactly the same MOMENT, and/or, you have made the enterprise CUI huge (thus the file size is so huge that takes a good CAD computer long to read it).

I've had a few hundred users access network-located CUIx files without negative effects.
