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

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

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