String representing the filename or absolute pathname of the DLL file containing the custom DSP.

If the string specifies a path but the file does not exist in the specified directory, the function fails. When specifying a path, be sure to use backslashes (\), not forward slashes (/).

If the string does not specify a path, the function uses the standard search strategy of the LoadLibrary Windows API to find the file.
