I am using Delphi2 in Win95, on a Pentium 150 with 16Mb
RAM.

I am attempting to use a DLL. I have declared the routines
as:

   interface
   .
   .
   procedure Something; StdCall; {As directed by Dll doc}
   .
   .
   Implementation
   .
   .
   procedure Something; external 'cbw32.dll';
   .
   .



However I get the error:
           "The CBW32.DLL file cannot start.
          Check the file to determine the problem"

The Dll is in the same directory as my project.
I also have the project directory in the search
path under project options.

Compiler options are: {$D+,S+,L+,F+}

What should I do ?

The problem was that the Dll in question was actually
relying on another DLL which was not documented,
and which was not in the search path. Once I added
this additional Dll to the search path, everything
went ok.
