The way I do it is by setting the PATH environment variable up in the
project settings: Configuration Properties->Debugging->Environment and
setting it to something like PATH=%PATH%;C:\my_mysqlpp_directory
You could also set up the PATH permanently, but I prefer to specify the path
to use in each project so I know which version of the dll is being used.
