    [SDL] sdl.dll in another path

    This should be easy, I have SDL.DLL and the other DLL's in another path called Lib. How can I have Laz recognize this path?

    [SDL] sdl.dll in another path

    use the Lib directory as your output directory (ie put the exe into that directory)

    [SDL] sdl.dll in another path

    I want to neatly order my files.
    lib <-- SDL, etc.
    graphics
    etc.


    myapplic.exe
    readme.txt

    and no other.
    In win32 I tried 'SetDllDirectory ('lib') but I got an error.
    anyone knows why? http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms686203.aspx

    I think it needs an absolute path to the lib folder, not a relative one. Just a hunch.

    Well, "an error" is not very descriptive, but setdlldirectory only works for loadlibrary'd dlls. And the last time I looked at SDL, it didn't do that.

    Windows simply only searches local dir and some global dirs like windows/system32. Not much you can do about that, except loadlibrarying everything.
