Thanks for your work on this, Gord. I made the changes we discussed via email as well as adding in initial path portablization so users can set custom paths to samples, etc. Only the working directory will be fixed to ensure settings aren't lost.

I seem to get an error after I open LMMS and the splash screen is displayed. What are the system requirements for this app?
