    distributing dll files

    How do yous distribute dlls files when sharing your games when other people? On my website I have a section where people can download the necessary files. They then can install the files themselves.

    With most DLLs, they can either go in the same folder as the EXE, or the Windows System folder, but it would probably be recommended to put them into the EXE folder, so that you don't overwrite the ones in the System folder.
