WB Launch probs

I have written a little prog in asm that just displays a gfx. I used the HowtoCode7 startup code. The gfx file was just incbin'd into the prog. It worked when I clicked the icon Devpac created.

I changed it to load the gfx from disk and now the icon launch fails. It just flashes and nothing happens, but it works from the Shell and also from Devpac->RUN.

Does anyone know why this might be?

Yes, it is. It tries to execute, but fails...

I don't know if you're trying this out on a real Amiga or on an emulator (?)
If it happens on the real Amiga, your program has a bug.
If it happens on the emulator, it could be an emulation problem...

I had a similar problem. I cured it by making the filename the complete filepath , alternatively you could make an assign (before you run) to the directory the files are in and use the assign in the filename, i.e - dc.b "myassign:myfile",0.

As an aside I tried to make calls to DOS Lock(), CurrentDir() & UnLock() thinking that this might do it, however I couldn't get the program to run at all!

(I still think that the DOS calls are the answer (probably I'm completely wrong) but I'm buggered if I know how to do it!
