Linking to a compiled app on Windows


I noticed that when I just create a link to a an exe, and I execute the link, the xojo Lib folder is not found and the exe does not run.
How does one create a shortcut to an exe made with Xojo that does work?


Make sure you set the “Start in” (Right click->Properties) field of the shortcut to the same directory as the exe

You can create links easily in an installer when installing the app.
Or use our MBS Plugin class to create them: WindowsShortCutMBS

Per, yes even if that is OK, the problem happens. It’s like that field is ignored by the exe.
Christian, yes with an installer it is not a problem. I’ll take a look at the plugin.
