I can't find, within my project directories, any option to specify where I want my .exe to start in. I want to do this for that sake of .dll and other file references. Any help?

Look under:
Project Menu/Properties/Configuration Properties/General/Output Directory

I think this is to what you are referring.

Also see Project Menu/Properties/Configuration Properties/Debugging/Working Directory

I'm not sure what the exact distinction between those two is, but the latter might let you just specify the directory for the dlls without having to spawn the exe there.

Thanks, the "working directory" option was the one I was looking for.

You can also set the Environment and turn on Merge Environment so that you don't have to copy all the .dll to your working directory.

In Environment type in:

Path=$(PATH);c:\my\dll\directoy\;d:\another\dll\directory;
