Make sure your file is always in the same directory (in debug or release mode).
Give the full path to the file instead of a relative path.

Make sure your file is always in the same directory (in debug or release mode).

Create a folder in \bin\Debug as "Test".
Use this to locate folder and files within.

Dim myFolder As String = Application.StartupPath & "\Test\"

When distributing the .app, make sure you have a folder named "Test" in the same folder as the .exe and you can use that Application.StartupPath & "\Test\" for whatever use needed.

Hope this helps.
