bug with autorun on Windows?

I had the same thing happen on a major project and had to get the path 
of the executable on startup and set the default folder to that.

I did copy my 'images' folder to the root level on one project so the 
code could follow it because I didn't have time to change the startup 
code but that is a hack.



No other way I know of. On Sep 30, 2004, at 12:11 PM, Chris Sheffield
