dll location

My goal is keeping all dll's in system folder. But the exe doesn't see some dll's there. Some of them should lay in folder "sqldrivers" and libpq.dll even must lay right near the exe.
Perhaps the question is silly, but I'm new in c++.
Win 7 + Qt 5 + Mingw.
Thanx in advance! ?(

Hi. On Windows you can use the qt.conf special file to specify the location of the plugins directory. I normally put the required dll in the exe folder.
On Linux you can use the special key

PHP Source code

unix:!mac {
    LIBS += -Wl,-rpath=\\\$$ORIGIN/libs

to specify the location of all dlls.
