DLL search order RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All --

    Can someone suggest the best forum here to ask a question about DLL search order. I've been having lots of problems with loading DLLs from user-defined locations pointed to by the Path environment variable and the App paths registry key. The client application is written in C++ and I want to find a method that is most standard and portable across Windows 7, Vista and XP. I tried searching for documentation in the Microsoft resources, but so far I haven't found any description that is comprehensive, complete and clear.

    Thank you in advance,
