### Problem with linking LaTeX and Mendeley

Hey guys, I'm attempting to get LaTeX setup with Mendeley as my .bib generator. I'm using TexLive with TexMaker. I've gotten almost everything working, but I'm having trouble getting LaTeX to look in the folder where I'm having Mendeley put my .bib files. I can take the .bib file and put it in the same folder as my main document file and then it works. I've been following[this][https://simonduerr.eu/blog/mendeley-latex-texmaker-setup-tutorial/] guide from 2016. He says to put "biber --input-directory='C:/Users/Simon/Dropbox/BibTex/' build/%" in for the Bib(La)Tex configure line, obviously with the file tree being your's and not the one for his file. Does "build/%" mean to put the file tree where your LaTeX files are stored and % looks for the current file? That's what I had to put for it to pickup the bib file when I put it in that folder, so I assume so. My main question is why doesn't it properly at the mendeley folder to my search path? Here's the error message:

INFO - This is Biber 2.11 INFO - Logfile is 'C:/Users/Sean/Desktop/LaTex_Lessons/Test01.blg' INFO - Reading 'C:/Users/Sean/Desktop/LaTex_Lessons/Test01.bcf' INFO - Found 1 citekeys in bib section 0 INFO - Processing section 0 INFO - Looking for bibtex format file 'Test.bib' for section 0

ERROR - Cannot find 'Test.bib'! INFO - ERRORS: 1

Here's the relevant section of code from my file:

\usepackage[style=ieee]{biblatex}
