1047 - Why doesn’t my Test() not work off a CD?

by - Joseph Ganci

Here is my code under File in the properties box of the graphic:


It works beautifully in the authorware file and even when I package it and run the .exe from my hard drive. When I cut a CD however, the graphics don't display. The GraphicsExt folder with the appropriate files is on the CD. What am I doing wrong?

First, you seem to be using forward slashes instead of back slashes. You should change the // to \\. Second, you don't need the first set of slashes after FileLocation. FileLocation ends with backslashes ready to go (see its value in the variables dialog box), so you're adding *more* backslashes, which seems to work OK under certain conditions but not under others. I think that's where your problem lies.
