Files and folders created and used by PROMOTIC system

A list of files created while the application is being developed:
 
Application.pra: Application data (the most important application file). All data edited by the application editor, graphic editor and the translated panel data are stored here. PRA file extension is registered after the installation of PROMOTIC into the system.
Application.ini: Text INI file where some basic application parameters can be found. See: Application INI file description (Application.ini).
Application.log: Text file where the application runtime data are written. The content can be configured in the Application.ini file in the [Log] section.
Application.log.old: Last backup of the Application.log file
MyItem.pmi: App designer created graphic item in the application stored into the preconfiguration is stored directly in the application folder. If it was stored into the group, then it is stored in the subfolder of the application folder.
 
A list of subfolders created while the application is being developed:
 
Cfg: Path to configuration files of the application. See the configurator "#cfg: - to configuration files".
Data: Path path to data files of the application. See the configurator "#data: - to data files".
Resource: Path to application resources. See the configurator "#appres: - to resources (resources: jpg,gif,avi,wav,...)".
DtBackup: Path to backups (especially backup of the PRA file containing the whole application) that are created by the development environment automatically, or on demand. The application PRA file backup is created if:
1) The application is converting from older to newer version. The existing PRA file is renamed as backup. For example Application.pra_080301_conversion
2) The whole application is saved (SaveAll). A copy of PRA file is created and named as backup. For example Application.pra_080301_20150218_130000_user
3) Automaticaly periodicaly if data is written into the PRA file. A copy of PRA file is created and named as backup. For example Application.pra_080301_20150218_130000_auto
Temp: Path to temporary and auxiliary files of the development environment and runtime.
 

Files essential for application recovery (used for backup)

The following files are essential for the creation of full application backup:
Application.pra
Application.ini
MyItem.pmi
 
What needs to be transfered or installed on the computer intended for the application runtime only?
1) Everything (simpler option):
a) PROMOTIC development environment
b) all files of the created project
c) additional files created by the designer (sound, database, etc.)

or:

2)Only the files required by the application runtime:
a) PROMOTIC development environment
b) only the following files from the created project:
- Application.pra
- Application.ini
c) additional files created by the designer (sound, database, etc.)
