[Interest] question about windows installation

I've been working on a relocatable Qt5 conda package, which patches the
hardcoded paths in the Qt5Core.dll and qmake.exe files. However, there are
a number of .lib and .prl files that conda is having trouble fixing the
paths because they use double backslashes "\\\\" for the path separator.
Why are double backslashes used? And what purpose do the .lib  and .prl
files serve? If I'm only using strictly static linking, do I need them? Is
it really necessary to use "\\\\" as the path separators? That is, could I
replace those with "/" or "\\"?
