I do not know enough to help with Windows-specific questions, but please
note that the "file not found" error in this context is often lying.
IIRC, the libtool library that Squid uses to handle dynamic library
loading returns an essentially invalid/incorrect error message on many
dynamic loading errors. This is not something Squid itself can fix.

On Unix, one can use environment variables like LD_DEBUG=ALL and
LD_WARN=1 to see why the dynamic loader is unhappy with the adapter
library. I do not know whether something like that works on Windows.
