Thanks a lot Gordon;

This help a little.
1. I had a small problem because you changed the Data.cfg to
MyData.cfg - after that it worked when I put the Data.cfg file in the
root dir.

2. Now to my real question : How about when the Data file is in a
subfolder I tried this:

a = Analysis(['C:\\_Matthias\\_APPS\\TEST3\\MyApp.py'],
             pathex=[])
pyz = PYZ(a.pure)
exe = EXE( pyz,
          a.scripts,
          a.binaries,

          [('Data.cfg', 'c:/_Matthias/_APPS/TEST3/Data/Data.cfg',
'BINARY')],

          name='MyApp.exe',
          debug=0,
          console=1)


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But the file in the subfolder Data is missing -- CAN Installer also
EXTRACT subfolders correctly and how do i include this folder/files
proberly.

As I work with larger applications I would like to have access to
subfolders and not everything in the root dir.

Any help would be greate.
