It'll be greate to have command line option to specify
location of required .dll files to the emulator.

    Hello,

    You don't really need a command-line options for
    specifying .dll's -- all you need for that is add the VDMS
    directory to the PATH environment variable. Unfortunately,
    what you *do* need (and cannot at this point) specify is
    the path to 'the' VDMS.INI file. Unless you have a copy of
    a VDMS.INI file in the directory with the game (where you
    double-clicked the game's .exe or where the DOS window
    started up) VDMS won't find the .INI file.

    So: to get rid of the "Error 1" (DLL not found or
    entrypoint error) add the VDMS path/directory to your PATH
    environment variable (this should also allow you to run
    dosdrv.exe from anywhere without needing to specify the
    VDMS path first).

    The possibility to specify the .INI file (right now it
    defaults to ".\VDMS.INI") will be added in the near future.
