dll Question

For help with anything that CEGUI doesn't offer straight out-of-the-box, e.g.:
- Implementation of new features, such as new Core classes, widgets, WindowRenderers, etc. ...
- Modification of any existing features for specific purposes
- Integration of CEGUI in new engines or frameworks and writing of new plugins (Renderer, Parser, ...) or modules

Hi,

Unless your specify a custom path from your application (.exe) itself, windows will not be able find dll's when they are not in your app directory, win32 or your path.

However (i have not tried this) i think you could do the following: launch your .exe from a batch file, in which you add your DLL directory to your system path. That way, i think that Windows will be able to find your file.

HTH!

I think it depends who is loading the DLLs; if the DLLs are automatically brought in by the system, then the PATH environment variable is key. If the DLLs are 'modules' loaded manually by the app, then you can specify a path in the calls to LoadLibrary or LoadLibraryEx. If you are not making the LoadLibrary calls yourself (i.e. the modules from CEGUI as loaded by CEGUI), then I think again the PATH variable again becomes key.

CE.
