Development / Issues Running on Windows 8
« on: March 19, 2015, 06:22:06 PM »
Hi all,

I'm having some issues running a quest via the command line in Windows 8. As I understand it, the Solarus executable simply takes an argument pointing to the root directory (where the data folder can be found) of a quest in order to run. Therefore, from any directory, I assumed the following would work:

Code: [Select]
C:\Users\user> <Path/To/Solarus/Executable> <Path/To/Quest/Folder>
However in Windows 8, this seems to do nothing (there is not output). The same thing seems to happen if I change to the solarus executable directory, and then run:

Code: [Select]
C:\Users\user\Desktop\Solarus\solarus> solarus.exe <Path/To/Quest/Folder>
The only way I can get the quest to run is by putting the quest in the same directory has the executable and running:

Code: [Select]
C:\Users\user\Desktop\Solarus\solarus> solarus.exe .
I want to be able to run Solarus via an external program, which itself launches a cmd instance and passes in the Solarus path followed by a quest path. The only other option that would work would be to run the Solarus executable directly and not through a cmd, passing in the quest path. However as I explained above, the quest will only run when both executable and quest are in the same folder. Is there something I'm missing here?
