Is the script a library generation script? IOW, does it _only_ have the following
writelib "xxx" aaa,bbb,ccc
release procs all
(possibly with the createlib at the start of the script,
and writelibs after each proc).
If so, then you'll need to explicitly run the script to regenerate
the procedure library.
Are you absolutely certain that the runtime version is actually using
the directory you copied it to? Pdoxrun.cfg may specify another startup
directory (I got fooled by this once; I thought the program was executing
from the hard drive, but pdoxrun.cfg specified a network directory as the
The way to test this is to temporarily replace the initial script. For example,
if your launch command is:
<set drive and path using C: and cd \abc\def>
then rename main.sc to mainold.sc, and create a temporary main.sc which reads:
message "This is the startup script"
and launch paradox; if you see your message, then you know it's the right directory.
If not, you know it's not even using that directory.
