How are you launching the app? Is it via the interactive window or are you
doing a start w/ or w/o debugger? It looks like we don't set the path in
the interactive window but we do otherwise.
Of course being in the same directory (as the start file) should mean
that it's available for import anyway. If you could do:
print System.Environment.CurrentDirectory, sys.path
and see if those values are the correct dir for your project and include
the directories you've setup in the search path.
I'm also not sure how I feel about setting the search path via the UI
in general. I'm a little concerned that it'll make it too easy to create
scripts that work when launched in VS but not outside of VS. So if anyone
has any feedback on how this should be handled I'd love to hear it.
