Hi im making a launcher, and ive got it to work for the most part, but the only problem is that when i click on the launcher button it starts to launcher, but it thinks that im using the directory im using the launcher in for my media. How do it tell it to use the directory my game is in....

OK. I'd recommend you write a registry value when the application is installed, and the read it into the launcher. I assume the launcher will be on a CD or something similar?

You can then use the CRT function _chdir() to change the working directory, and then execute the application, or just execute it using it's fully-qualified path name.

I hope that was helpful.
