Re: DLL not found question

I hope no one minds if I resurrect this thread.
Anyone on Windows will encounter the same issue, and I'm wondering what the best approach is or will be. Particularly, take into account that I might not be using CMake to build all of my [3rd party] dependencies, nor might I want to drop all targets in the same directory.
There are two places DLL's of dependencies should end up. First, in the Output Directory of my executable, so that I can run it immediately. Second, in the INSTALL location, which would also help CPack pick them up later. Both are dependent on what configuration is being used (debug/optimized).
Perhaps if Find<3rdParty>.cmake or <3rdParty>Config.cmake advertised a 3rdParty_BIN_DIR or 3rdParty_RUNTIME_DIR this would help? I could try writing a FIND_RUNTIME_LIBRARY macro if that would help.

You could set EXECUTABLE_OUTPUT_PATH and LIBRARY_OUTPUT_PATH to the same directory, then both should end up in the same directory.
