How to get the folder of libmysql.dll

Hi,

Is there a way to get the folder of libmysql.dll?
Normaly it would be in: C:\WINDOWS\system32\libmySQL.dll
Maybe it's registred somewhere in the regsitry, but I cannot say for certain that that is always the case on customer's computer.
Also the folder might be different on 64bit machines?

Yes, when MySQL server is installed, but when only the library is used, I might be installed somewhere else.
Is there a way to get this info from registry?

Just do a search for the file using windows explorer.

What will happen is there a multiple dll's (the same of course) on one machine.
If it is not registrered, wil it take the dll that is in de application's folder?

If you get Process Explorer (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653) or listdll (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896656_), or there is a third part program regdllview (http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/registered_dll_view.html).  Alternatively you could just register the dll with Regsvr32 to make sure it is the one you want.
