The environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH is said to work in Cygwin as well. So setting it to a list of directories where to look for DLLs might do the trick. Dunno whether colon-separated (UNIXy) semi-colon separated (DOSy).

Hi TomÃs and thanks for the quick reply. I tried setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH using $ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/dll-files (and then checking with
$ echo LD_LIBRARY_PATH that it "stuck"), but the process still cannot find the DLL files. I am starting the process with strace so I am sure this is the problem, not something else. I guess I could temporarily modify the PATH but I'm interested in alternatives.
