I am having a problem in an application that has a single form as the desktop.

I have it setup so that when the application is run it displays the one form. When the person exits the form the application exists as well.

When running in the IDE it displays the form and the IDE desktop disappears. The form runs fine and when I close the form the IDE is closed as well. All seems to work as I want.

However when I package the application as an APP and run it on a target winXP it complains it can not find a file but the file path is wrong.

I put in some messageboxes but none of them displays anything which gets me wondering.

When you have a form as the desktop does the 'MAIN' program for the application still run?

Are there any special considerations required for this configuration?
