Hi, greatly appreciate your time and effort helping us.
My app installs with a folder under Documents for the users data. In 4.4.1 the installer creates this folder and I can retrieve the path to it in code but when I call to Change the Directory to this, POM rejects the call throwing me into the programs internal data directory, which is the current directory. This has various unwanted effects and renders the app unusable even though all the other code seems to run correctly under 4.4.1. It is difficult to deal with the inability to use the path to the Documents folder. POM does create another folder called MyDocuments in its virtual drive but it does not provide that path when the (Windows) Documents path is queried. I cannot see why it should reject the standard user's Documents path. It should accept it or redirect it to the virtual drive's MyDocuments folder but if the later, then the installer must do the same.
It would be better to allow the user to use their own Documents folder for data docs since the idea is to provide an experience to the user as if they were running a Mac native app. If there is an insistence of some kind of sand-boxing, then this needs to be done consistently in the installer and the run-time. In that case, it would be very helpful to provide the user a direct access to that folder in the POM interface, like a right-click on the app icon gives a link to the App's documents folder. After all, the user may often need to access this data for emailing etc. and searching in the Finder may be challenging for the typical non-tech user.
Even though I have written several lines, I hope you can see that the actual issue is very simple. The failure of the installer and the run-time to handle the Documents path consistently or correctly.
Any assistance woukld be greately appreciated, thank you for your time.
