Recommended Posts

bbcjoey

I have a program and its almost ready togo but i can't find seem to remember the way to make it run from the current users dsktop or other location:

Like mine is:

"C:/Joe/Desktop/Program/Stuff"

Someone elses might be:

"F:/Ron/Desktop/Program/Stuff"

Now of course after the c:/ron the program/stuff i will include with the program but how do i get it to use the current users pathing?

It looked to me like he was going to specify part of the path by making sure it was installed in a folder on the desktop.

Editt: And I might add that your example specifies C:\ as the drive. That is not always the case.
