Let say, I must do this and I don't want to load the one.gif from vb design time  :

main1form.picture =loadpicture("c:\math253\images\one.gif")

to load the one.gif from the directory c:\math253\images.
and my vb program(.exe) must be in math253 directory.

so I must setup my program in c:\math253 ...., right ?

if I save everything in A drive without changing anything, or if I save everything in c:\ada like c:\ada\math253...
why my program can't run ? Is there a way I can run my vb program in anywhere or any directory or something like
c:\ada\math\math253...  ? If yes, can you tell me how and I would like the detail and code. Remember one.gif must be in math\253\images\

Thank a lot

Yes.  You'll load the image like this:

main1form.picture =loadpicture(App.Path & "\images\one.gif")

In the design environment, the app.path will return the directory from which you're running the .VBP project file (or the VB installation directory if you haven't yet saved the project).

With the compiled executable, however, this will always return the place from which the EXE was run.  You'll probably want to save a copy of the image off of your project directory in the \Images directory so it works both in the environment and when compiled.

Good luck!

I am confused. Ok let say I have this :

main1form.picture =loadpicture(App.Path & "\images\one.gif")

after I finished the designing the program, I make it EXE file.

So does that mean I can run this program(.exe) in anywhere like copy everything into
A drive or put everything in another sub-sub directory like
c:\math\tan\math253

Is that correct ? My program will run
