    Unhappy Very very simple file input question.

    Man I feel like an idiot. I searched this sites tutorial section and used the search feature, but didn't find my answer. Frankly I don't know what to Google either.


    Simple problem:

    My file structure:
    Code:
    Program.exe (file)
    Games (directory)
       - SomeFile.dll
    My code trying to access SomeFile.dll
    Code:
    gameLibInst = LoadLibrary("..\\Games\\SomeFile.dll");
    The problem is in red. What do I have to do for this to work without typing out the entire path?

    I've tried the obvious, but perhaps I'm retarded:

    Code:
    gameLibInst = LoadLibrary("..\\Games\\SomeFile.dll");
    gameLibInst = LoadLibrary(".\\Games\\SomeFile.dll");
    gameLibInst = LoadLibrary("\\Games\\SomeFile.dll");
    gameLibInst = LoadLibrary("Games\\SomeFile.dll");
    gameLibInst = LoadLibrary(".\Games\SomeFile.dll");
    etc...etc..

    LoadLibrary("Games/SomeFile.dll"); ?

    There is nothing important to go up to with ../ if your directory tree is really the way you say it is.
