Win10 execution dir
« on: September 01, 2015, 02:14:28 am »
Hi,

Just wondering if this is a new issue relating to Win10. 

I've never had this issue before but since my new laptop came with 10 setting the execution directory does not work.  Firstly if I set bogus location I get message boxes pop-up telling me SDL2.dll .... etc could not be found.  If it's set correctly then my program runs but hangs.  If I click on the icon in the taskbar it then gives me the messages - "The program can't start becase SDL2.dll is missing ....." and so on.  The DLL are in the correct place.

Has anyone else been having this problem?

Thanks :)

What do you mean by "the dll are in correct place"?

You need to put the SDL dll's where the actual program exe's are. So if your program is bin/debug/test.exe then put the dll in bin/debug/
