How do I link a missing file?

the exe file/program that I've installed cant find (file1)...file1 is installed in two places (one for the exe and another location for other library files that need it)...I have tried to use the ln command in various ways with no luck, the exe still cant find the required library file...example:

ln -s exe (path) file1 (path)
ln -s file1 (path) exe (path)

The second occurence:

ln -s exe (path) file1 (same name different path)
ln -s file1 (same name different path) exe (path)

The end result is still the same...the exe says it cant find required lib file1...does anyone have any ideas...during ./configure, make and make install 'no errors' occured. Below is the result from the Crash Handler when I try to run the exe. See below please.

Maybe if you run "/sbin/ldconfig" that will solve it. It's necessary to do that every time new shared libraries are installed (or symlinks are created). See "man ldconfig".
