Can I use ADDPATH in a compiled application from MATLAB Compiler 4.10 (R2009a)?

My MATLAB program contain ADDPATH commands that refer to MATLAB files located in another directory. I would like to know if my compiled application will be able to mirror the directory structure if I provide it relative paths.

This change has been incorporated into the documentation in Release 2011a (R2011a). For previous releases, read below for any additional information:
It is not recommended to use ADDPATH in a deployed application. As a workaround, use paths relative to MATLABROOT or CTFROOT.
For example, change code like this:
addpath(my/data/directory)
fp = fopen('data.file', 'r');
To code like this:
fp = fopen(fullfile(ctfroot, 'my', 'data', 'directory', 'data.file'));

what dose ctfroot mean in terms of compiled exe file? the path of that exe file? So 'my', 'data', 'directory' should be placed immediately in the same foder?

Hi Mendel, In terms of compiled exe, ctfroot will point to the root directory of the extracted cache of the deployed component.
