Externals Folder?

Post by CuriousOne » Wed Jan 09, 2019 6:56 pm

Hi everyone,

When I create a standalone version for Windows, an Externals folder is also created.
I believe this is due to the browser widget that is being used.
How can this Externals folder be incorporated into the exe file so I don’t have to distribute it along with the exe?

Thank you

Klaus

Is there anything inside the External folder ...?

If not then just delete it...

Yo, good point! :D

That folder will get created in any case, even if it will not be neccessary = empty folder.
