Force WINE to recognize dll from a folder

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – For testing purposes, I want to execute an .exe file on my Debian machine. The program has no entry in winehq's appdb. Every time I want to start it, it prints several errors that DLL files are missing, although the named files are in the application folder (that came with the program) and in the windows/system32 folder (copied them there). Is there any way to force wine to use the DLLs from the application folder? I am using the Debian version of wine (wine --version: wine-1.1.42) (HowTos)
