FAQ1330C.txt   Can't open data files in a relative path while debugging
Category   :IDE
Platform    :All
Product    :BC++  5.x

Question:
My program accesses data files in a directory whose
name is a relative path based off of the directory in
which the executable is run. I am unable to debug this,
however, because even though I build the executable
into its own directory, the integrated debugger
believes its working directory to be bc5\bin, which
makes my program fail to find its data files. What do I
do?


Answer:
Modify your program to make it wait for some input
before doing anything interesting. Run the program from
its natural directory, under windows (not under the
debugger), and then use Debug|Attach to attach to the
running process. Then give your executable the input it
needs to proceed, and you should be able to debug as
normal.
