The application source consists of a set of .py files and two modules that contain the UIs for the various windows and dialogs. The directory structure looks like this:

Is there something else I need to do to make the ui module visible to the app? (Adding the module directories to the sys.path field on the “Application Sources” tab didn’t help.)

I would expect to see an __init__.py in the ELFB directory.
