I don't know if I am completely confused, is it a bug or just wrong
I still have troubles with getting the right path for my DB, developing with
2.9 on Win XP, testing on Mac. Testing on Win, everything works fine. I'll
try to describe my problem again.
In my development environment my DB is located in a subfolder /db/
To access my DB in my program I tried two ways to set the path:
A: relative "/db/"
B: absolute "/users/.../db/"
1. When creating the standalone, my DB is put into the same folder as my
program: myApp.app/Contents/MacOS (and not as expected in a subfolder:
2. The DB file, which is copied into the standalone package has 0 kb. Why?
I copied manually the DB file into the package and replaced the 0 kb file.
3. Now I copied the whole package to a Mac and tested, but my program
doesn't find the DB in the expected path /db/ neither with method A nor B
4. Only when creating a folder "db" with the DB on the Mac in the same
folder as my App, my program finds the DB. But this can't be the way,
because now the folder with the DB is outside of the app.package.
Where is my fault?
Thanks for any help for a runaway :)
