Oh thank you jkr, but I have a problem.
I have this #import definition:

#import "d:\Server\AMDLL_DB\Amdb.dll"  no_namespace

before all the code.
I would like to make this path relative to application path and not absolute.
What have I do?
Best regards,
Chris

Well, in this case, you'll have to make it relative to your project dir, e.g.

#import "..\..\..\Server\AMDLL_DB\Amdb.dll"  no_namespace

You'll have to adapt it to your situation, of course.

OK, jkr. Perfect.
Don't know why this solution wasn't working when I had tried it.
Now it's all OK.
Fixed.
