Are you trying to run the same compiled DLM in both IDL 5.2 and 5.3?
Others can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that binary DLMs are
not guaranteed to be compatible between IDL versions.  The problem is
that structure definitions and other binary interfaces change between

If you recompiled it for IDL 5.2 then that's a different story!
