Force CWD

Current working directory can be specified in configuration file


The "Current Working Directory" will affect file operations with a relative path. If a file is created with a filename only without a directory path, the file will be created in the "current working directory".

Generated exe supports to change its "Current Working Directory" to a specified directory before it begins to run, ignoring the current directory where it is started. 

To set a "current working directory", you can use a configure item 'forcecwd' in configuration file.

Configure Item 'forcecwd'

A configure item 'forcecwd' is to set a "current working directory". If 'forcecwd' is followed by a relative path, the relative path is based on the generated exe's path.

 See forcecwd page for details of configuration.
