You have ot statically link the DLL to your code. It blows up the size of your exe but its a single file.

Sorry, mixed up the loading of the library with its linking. The lib file for a DLL is only needed for loading it. To statically link you have to create a static link library (.lib as well). Was it you who has developed the DLL? Then the help (DLLs for beginners) can help you how to convert a project from DLL to lib even the text is for the other way.
