What's the best strategy to deploy data files? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Let's say I'm writing an app to view maps in a certain format. In a Win32 App, I would copy all maps to a certain location, say D:\maps, and configure that setting in the viewer program.

    Now in this store app model, I cannot access a random place on the hard drive. The map data is not part of the app and should not be distributed under the app's installation folder. I wonder what's the best strategy to place these files. Thanks.

  • I place those sort of files in the assets folder if they are to be read only.

    If they need to be copied somewhere then put them in assets then copy them to say pictures or local folders.
