Depends on architecture. Suppose, plugins will be compiled with the 
application and will be "registered" in some container (list, for 
example). So, the turn-off will remove them from the list / will mark 
them with some flag as "disabled". So, your pipeline will skip them.

As I understand you have cases:
- plugins are DLLs
- plugins are statically linked with application but can be disabled 
- plugins are EXEs, so easy can be found/called...
