Main executable lies in child folder

Post by spooky » Thu Mar 19, 2020 3:02 pm

Hi!

I have the following folder structure:
C:\Program Files (x86)\ElsterFormular
C:\Program Files (x86)\ElsterFormular\bin
C:\Program Files (x86)\ElsterFormular\dict
C:\Program Files (x86)\ElsterFormular\hilfe
C:\Program Files (x86)\ElsterFormular\images

Main executable lies in \bin folder. How I correctly setup the Virtual Box folder structure?
My following attempts don't work. Please advise.

Thank you!!!

Hi, you do not have to use "Program Files FOLDER", this does not matter where the application is installed on your computers, these folders means the relation of the main exe to other files.

You have to use "DEFAULT FOLDER", that would be the folder where your main exe is located, i.e. C:\Program Files (x86)\ElsterFormular\bin, so put all files from "C:\Program Files (x86)\ElsterFormular\bin" to "DEFAULT FOLDER".
Since other folders are located outside of "DEFAULT FOLDER", you need to add a folder with name ".." (just two dots without quotes), this will tell EVB that it should look over this folder and add there others dict, hilfe etc.

Something like this:
