I don't think BuddyAPI uses the searchPaths as Director would. You'll hae
to hard code the path or assemble a path relative to your movie or
Word of Mouth Productions

The searchPaths is what /Director/ uses to resolve paths in the case of
incomplete filenames/missing assets. You should never rely on an xtra to
use it and should *always* supply full paths to files you are accessing:
username = baReadIni("User_details","Name","error", "E:\PhD
Development work\My Director
--prefs.ini is the file that is stored in the preferences folder.
put username into member("name")
