It's why I was (unsuccessfully :-( ) suggesting to have the GNUstep.conf file in this directory.
I don't understand this last comment ... what is it that doesn't work when you put the GNUstep.conf file and the gnustep-base dll in the same directory? I'm moderately sure I tested that configuration on mingw (not just on unix) a few weeks ago, before my machine died.

I didn't try...
but according to my understanding of what you said.
this would never be implemented.

I have no idea how I managed to give that impression ... that's one of the main ways the configuration system is *designed* to work.

Now if I get this email correctly that should, in fact, work?
mhh... I have to give it a try then!

Could I use a path like that in the GNUstep.conf then:

I think that 'GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_ROOT=./System' would be more normal though ... it says that the System domain is the 'System' subdirectory of the directory containing the config file.

You configure the base library with './configure --with-config-file=./ GNUstep.conf' to tell it to look for the config file in the same directory as the DLL.

do you think this behavior of:
1. using a GNUstep.conf file (in the same directory as the dlls)
2. specifying path starting with "./"

is here to stay?

Yes ... it's a core design feature of the new config file system ...
ie. one of our key objectives designing it was to make creation of relocatable packages for windows easy.
