Cat won't eat dry food

Hi, we have two cats, approximately 9 months old, one is completely fine and will eat dry food and wet food but the other will not touch the dry food. I have looked online lots and loads of people seem to think this is good. However, because she won't eat dry food, we have to feed her 5 times a day, this costs a fortune, is very difficult if we are out anymore than normal working hours and when she does come to eat she is often so hungry that she eats it too quickly and at least once a week throws it all back up again 5 minutes later. It is not that we are buying really cheap wet food and that is why she is throwing up, we get decent stuff. We have tried her with at least 6 or 7 different types of dry food, none of which she will even try. We have tried mixing it with the wet food, mixing it with a cat yoghurt treat thing, mixing it with water, mixing it with lactose free milk, grinding it up, everything we can think of. She won't even eat the dry treats such as dreamies. But if you accidentally drop a prawn cracker or a bit of a poppadom or some Cheerios on the floor she will grab them and run off and eat them. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to try, a technique to get her to eat it, a brand that might tempt her or anything else. Please don't spam saying it is good that she won't eat dry food.
