I'm trying to get my project back to the state it was in September 8, 2011.
I've restored all of the source files. I restored them to a folder called
"Restored Application." Then I changed the location of the Pay.exe file
from c:\<original location>\executable\pay.exe to c:\restored
application\executable\pay.exe.

I wanted to start over, so I restored both the pbl containing the project
object and pay.pbw from the 9/8/2011 offsite backup location. But when I
look in the project object, the location of pay.exe is pointing to
c:\RESTORED APPLICATION\executable\pay.exe. (caps mine). That location
didn't even exist until today. How can I see it when I'm using a project
object and a .PBW from September 2011???????

The offsite backup maintained by a 3rd party backup application. There's
no possibility that I overwrite it by mistake.

Well, I should re-phrase. What are the rules about the location of the
executable? I renamed the root folder from "Restored Application" to
"Restored Application RENAMED" and lo, the location of the executable showed
up as c:\restored application RENAMED\executable\pay.exe.

BUT, when I changed the location to simply c:\pay.exe, that stuck. The root
folder disappeared.

Can anyone articulate the rules?

TIA

PB tries to use a relative path if it can. Probably either
based on the folder your pbw is stored in, or the "Source
Control" "Local Root Directory" folder.

PB Spy can show you the raw contents of the project object
if you want to see how the relative path is stored.

Starting in 12 or 12.5 the paths in the project object are relative.
