How to call dll which is located in [SUPPORTDIR]?

I need to use dll's functions during installation, but before files of features are installed. So, I included this dll into support files view, but how to use it in my sequence I don't know. I tried via Standard dll->Located in search path, I set name of dll and name of function to call. But in this case installer says that it can't find my dll, I guess because SUPPORTDIR is not included into search path, when this CA is processed.
So guys, could you help me how I can use dll from SUPPORTDIR, or tell me workaround? :confused:

Please set CustomActionData MSI property to SUPPORTDIR using Set Property Custom Action.
