Relative PAth

Thu Jul 22, 2021 6:25 pm


I know it is a simple feature but still I do not understand how to set files with relative paths.
I add files , and it looks the installer is added them with absoulte path even I have selected relative path option.

Note that all paths in your projects are stored as relative or absolute depending on the setting you use in the Project->Options... dialog.

Paths are stored (in AIP) by default as relative to the project file (AIP), if they reside on the same logical drive as the AIP. Otherwise, they are stored in absolute form. Your files may appear to have absolute paths but the project actually holds relative paths internally. The absolute paths to the files are displayed so that the files can be located easily by the user.

For details, you can check Relative path in “Files and Folders” forum thread.

Also, as alternative you can use Path Variables.

Hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
