Changing the Current Working Directory
When you are working in the PowerBuilder environment you quite often change the working directory while looking for a file or looking at some source code in a different directory. This can cause problems when you next run you application as PowerBuilder cannot find your development files such as INI files or Bitmaps in the working directory.

There are two ways to make PowerBuilder reset the working directory back to the directory where your application is located.

  • Goto the application painter and then select properties, click to the library path tab and then close the properties dialog and close the application painter.
  • As I always work from the library painter my personal favourite and the fastest method is to close the library painter and open another library painter from the framebar.
