Current application path is the default path of any dependent DLL(s). Thus DLL should reside in the same directory as the application executable.
However there is some system specific locations for storing operating system shared DLLs.


  • %systemroot%
  • %systemroot%\system
  • %systemroot%\system32
  • %systemroot%\system32\drivers
  • /lib
  • /lib/modules
  • /usr/local/lib

The last location where we can place our DLLs are the directories in the system and or user PATH environment variable.
