Store Data inside standalone app

In MAX 5 I built a patcher that is a remote control for a Digital Matrix that is controlled by MIDI. The patch works on the computer I write it on perfectly, but when I make a standalone and bring it to another MAC it does not. The patch allows to select a MIDI-port and I can manage to save this information by using a “coll”-object and the write command, but in the standalone it does not read the file from the disc. I integrated a “thispatcher” to read out the path and set up a message-object to show me the information, where the file is located, but when I put the standalon-app onto another computer, it still shows the information from the computer where the patch was originally created. I tried different things, but none of them work. Is there any trick to store and read files within embedded patchers in standalone-apps?
