I have no means to compile webkit myself. I have downloaded night build 
containing webkit.dll, I'd like to use it in Delphi
(Object pascal) and the only way I see to do it is use COM component 
(below is source code), but calling DllRegisterServer
functions raises on error because I do not have CoreFoundation.dll

My question is how then can I use/get webkit.dll to be used in Delphi if 
I cannot complile source code myself.

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
var  webKidModule, fpc: hresult;
     fp: function : hresult;
  webKidModule := LoadLibrary('WebKit.dll');
  @fp := GetProcAddress(webKidModule, 'DllRegisterServer');
  if (@fp <> nil) then
    fpc := fp(); //calling DllRegisterServer
    if (fpc = S_OK) then
