Project Folder
Top Previous Next

Project Folder
Project file

My Autoplay Pro copy all pages, objects and settings used to create your Autoplay application and store in a single file, known as the project file "myautply.dat" The project file "myautply.dat" is located in the Project Folder. Every project has its own project folder. The Project Folder specifies and creates when you start a new project.

By default, all new project folders are created in your "\My Documents\My Autoplay\Projects" folder.

Project folder
The Disc Image folder is a folder for all files that you need to distribute. This is where you need to place any files that will be distributed with your application. It's also where the Autorun application will be built to when you build your project. By default, the Disc Image will be created inside the Project Folder. However, you can specify this folder at any other place.

Inside the Disc Image there is a sub folder Data Folder. The Data Folder acts as a central storage location for all of the files that you use inside your project and that placed outside your Disc Image folder. Whenever you add a file (like a JPEG image or WAV sound), the file is copied into the Data Folder first, and then the project accesses it from there. This helps make the project more portable and reliable, because the project doesn't have to rely on the original files that may be scattered all over your hard drive.
