Resource files are regenerated each time you compile. If the image file is no longer available at the original location, the compiler cannot recreate the resource.

The best way to work with external resources is to create a sub-directory in your project, copy all the necessary resources in that directory, and point to that directory for your resources. That way, if the original file is not longer available, or if the project is moved from one computer to another, the referenced file will still be there.

You mentioned in another post it wasn't a good idea to have sub-directories like that because user's could possibly delete them?

I am talking here about a subdirectory in your project, which won't be installed on the user computer, since the images are incorporated in the application itself through the resource files. This is a directory used by the compiler, not by the application.

I do not remember about that other post, but it was probably because the images were distributed as individual image files, which is not the same thing as resources.
