Folders and files of the PROMOTIC application

List of files created while the application is being developed:
 
Application.pra: Application data (the most important application file). All data edited by the development environment PROMOTIC 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
Application_Dt.log: Text file that is created for writing if error occurred in the development environment.
MyObject.pmg: App designer created Pmg object in the editor of Pmg objects 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.
 
List of subfolders created while the application is being developed:
 
Cfg: Path to the application configuration files folder. See "#cfg: - to configuration files" configurator.
Data: Path to the data files folder of the application. See "#data: - to data files" configurator.
Resource: Path to the resources folder (images, sounds, ..) of the application. See "#appres: - to resources (resources: jpg,gif,avi,wav,...)" configurator.
Temp: Path to temporary and auxiliary files of the development environment and runtime. See "#temp: - to temporary files" configurator.
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) Automatically periodically 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

History:
Pm8.03.02: New subfolders will be created in the application folder:
