Changing the start folder for compiled standalone app

17 views (last 30 days)
After a standalone packaging, when I install the app in Windows Environment (asking for shortcut on desktop) and I launch the app from the shortcut, the "working" path seems to be the desktop.
For example, the log file is created in the desktop with other files I need to create during the startup. I know how to get the path of ctfroot and the exe folder, but is there a way to change the path in which the app works?
Actually it seems that the app works in the pwd path because when I try the command in the compiled app the result is the desktop path.
Thank you

Have a look at this answer. You would need to add the required parts of this code to the OpeningFcn() of your application.
