I compiled a stand alone App for MAC. I installed it and tried to run. The application involves reading of some input data from data files. the app is always stuck and beeps because it can not find the datafiles although I placed them all together in the same location as app. The program script however runs fine and no errors. Have been trying to resolve this and even contacted tech support regarding this but no luck. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Yep, first thing is to have slashes the proper way (had the same problem).
What solved the problem for me was two things:
1. When I run the executable, I first navigated to my (main) MATLAB directory.
2. I set all loading to be like this:
load('<full_path_from_MATLAB_directory>/datafile.mat')
So if my path is Documents/MATLAB/input_dir/input1.mat then I did
load('input_dir/input1.mat')
Loren's blog summarises the different practices well.

Additionally, refer to the following documentation link to manage required files in the compiled application: http://www.mathworks.com/help/compiler/adding-required-files-to-the-project.html

This does not address the problem at all. Totally irrelevant solution as I see.
