Project - Settings - C++ - Preprocessor (select from Category combo box) - Additional include directories

Add here directories to search h-files in this project.

Project - Settings - Link - Input (select from Category combo box) - Additional library path.

Add here directories to search lib files.

There is no way to add directories to search Dll for specific programs. The rule is the same for all programs: when program is loaded, all it's Dll's should be found in current directory, program executable directory, Windows, System directory or available through PATH environment variable.

 Go to  Tools --> Option Then a tab control will appear.....

In this there will be a Tab named "Directories" select that Tab
There will be a combo box with many options select Library  from that option and
 add the PATH of your library files that......

Hope this will help you.....
