i'm a little back wards with my c++ knowledge. I kinda got thrown into a maintenance project on an existing project so I know how most of the software works, but I find myself lost on some simple entry level things sometimes.
That was my disclaimer for not feeling foolish for asking this. I've been adding MySQL++ to a project and to say i've been wrestling with understanding how to use an external library is an understatement. I actually have it working right now. The final problem I had with it was getting a MYSQLPP.DLL not found error. I pasted the files in the local folder the app was running from and it didn't fix it. I placed them in system32 and it works fine.
For reasons I wont bother to go into this is very undesired. How do I get my software to compile so it checks the local directory for the DLL files also? I've attempted googling it, but I guess I'm failing to word it correctly cause it seems like something easily answered but I guess I suck at 'google speak'
The local directory needs to be dynamic, not a static location as other users will be pasting the software into random directories.
