Declaring a DLL function ?

when I declare a DLL ( I wrote it using C) function , VB does not accept the DLL name without the full path information. MSDN says that directories in the PATH variable are searched for the DLL if DLL name does not include the path. I do not want to declare a static path. Can you help?
TIA

You need to either put it in the same directory as your .EXE file or somewhere in the path.

Why don't you place (a copy of ) the DLL in the Windows system directory ?

after seeing the replies I tried and it is working now. It is strange, Ive tried many times before but it has not worked!!! I have tried after copying the DLL to the system directory and application directory a few times but I could not succeed.Now it works. Any comment? By the way, send comment as reply and I will send points.
thanks
