ofSetDataPathRoot does not apply from IDE

Hello all,

I’m running VS2015 and when i set the path to data folder it works when double clicking the app but not when running from the IDE. Is this the expected behavior?

ofSetDataPathRoot("../data/");

my folder structure is:

app/
    bin/
        data/
        Win32/
        x64/

I need this because some .dlls (like freeimage and freetype) have same names but seem to conflict in different platforms.

Any tips appreciated! thanks!

no, sounds like a bug, can you open an issue on github?

Done. Thanks for the fast reply!
