Matlab Compiler Shared Resources and Helper Files Issue

I am having an issue with my executable with finding a .pptx file as a shared resource.
I have included it inside the executable but it cannot find the file once the executable is deployed but can find another file which is a .jpg and is looked for in a similar way.
Does anybody have an idea of why it cannot find a .pptx file but can find a .jpg?
Thanks,
Kevin

I used the deploytool to add the file.
I am calling it by searching within the executable's "working directory":
base_dir = cd;
copyfile([base_dir '\BaseM9.pptx'], filename);

See this entry on the FAQ: http://matlab.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ#My_standalone_executable_won.27t_run_on_the_target_computer._What_can_I_try.3F, particularly point #7 there. I'm pretty sure that's the cause of your problem.

This was indeed what it was. Thanks for the help on a non-intuitive problem!
