NWjs object UserFolder path is incomplete

Bugs will be moved here once resolved.

Problem Description
The NWjs object UserFolder does not return the drive letter / a compete path to a user's folder. When importing a sprite image using the UserFolder, the path is inadequate for the requirements of Sprite Load Image from URL. Reposted to remove the Canvas plugin (not required for the demo - my mistake!).

Attach a Capx

Description of Capx
The capx contains 2 methods of importing a sprite image from the user's hard drive - by using either the NWjs.UserFolder path or by opening a NWjs file chooser. The path in the file chooser is complete and loads the image, the path in UserFolder cannot be used to import a sprite image. You will have to save an image as per the instructions before running the test.

Steps to Reproduce Bug
  • Save an image to \Users\YourName\test folder\image.png
  • Run the layout in nw.js
  • Use the 2 buttons to select the image import path

Observed Result
The sprite image can be loaded from the ChosenPath but it cannot be loaded from the UserFolder path.

Expected Result
The UserFolder path in NWjs should permit a sprite to load an image from URL.

Affected Browsers
  • Only NW.js
