Hi Kenneth!
I am like you. The best you can do is to put them in the same folder as 
the application itself. So, my Domenator folder contains:

Domenator.exe
freeglut.dll
msvcp140d.dll
ucrtbased.dll
vcruntime140d.dll

This works fine, except as I said earlier, with the most recent versions 
of the dll's. I attach a zip with those which work for me as I am not 
sure how or where you could find those particular versions. I copied 
them from one of my other folders.

A tiny drawback of this method might be if you have several folders with 
different applications and all containing copies of the same dll's. That 
happens on my system. However, most dll's are quite small and take 
little space, and I have not been aware of any interference. But more 
knowledgeable people might know.
