Hi, i've got a program coming along nicely which uses a few items stored in sub folders of the main program directory (xml settings, images etc).  I tried to publish the project in visual studio via the build menu, but once compiled, the folders seem to go elsewhere, therefore my references are out in the project.

How do i ensure that the folders stay consistent??

Any help would be great

Thanks

How are you referencing the folders in your project?

Do you use 'Application.StartupPath'?

ye, application.startupPath. the subfolders are all in the main oot directory, but obviously the startup path is in the bin folder. So i use "../../" to go up to the root directory of the app, not the Bin.  

I looked into where the files go when it is published and it sends the bin and my subfolders into different folders about one or two levels higher???

Try creating directories and files under you bin folder and then run your application.
