Electron-Prisma Error: can not find module ‘.prisma/client’

I’m building a Nuxt-electron-prisma app and I kinda stuck here. when I use prisma normally as guided every thing is fine on dev but on build i get this error :

A javascript error occurred in the main process
Uncaught exception:
Error: can not find module : '.prisma/client'

I tried changing prisma provider output to ../resources/prisma/client

generator client {
  provider = "prisma-client-js"
  output   = "../resources/prisma/client"

and in main.js of electron

const { PrismaClient } = require('../resources/prisma/client');
const prisma = new PrismaClient()

but I get error Cannot find module '_http_common' at webpackMissingModules in both dev and build ! which by others opinion is caused when using prisma on client-side but I only use it on background.js (main.js of the my boilerplate)

I’m using Nuxtron boilerplate for Nuxt-electron which is using yml file for electron-builder config file and in it I also added prisma to files property:

appId: com.example.app
productName: nuxt-electron-prisma
copyright: Copyright © 2021
  oneClick: false
  perMachine: true
  allowToChangeInstallationDirectory: true

  output: dist
  buildResources: resources
  - "resources/prisma/database.db"
  - "node_modules/.prisma/**"
  - "node_modules/@prisma/client/**"
  - from: .
      - package.json
      - app
publish: null

and still get errors

in my win-unpacked/resources I have this only: win-unpackedresourcesapp.asar.unpackednode_modules@prismaengines

enter image description here

and of course my package.json

Ok, I finally solved it!! first of all no need to change client generator output direction!

datasource db {
  provider = "sqlite"
  url      = "file:../resources/database.db"
generator client {
  provider = "prisma-client-js"
  // output   = "../resources/prisma/client"  !! no need for this!

then in electron-builder config add ./prisma , @prisma and database

// my config file was a .yml
  - "resources/database.db"
  - "node_modules/.prisma/**/*"
  - "node_modules/@prisma/client/**/*"

// or in js

this solved `Error: cannot find module : ‘.prisma/client’

but this alone won’t read DB in built exe file!

so in main.js where importing @prisma/client should change DB reading directory:

import { join } from 'path';
const isProd = process.env.NODE_ENV === 'production';

import { PrismaClient } from '@prisma/client';
const prisma = new PrismaClient({
  datasources: {
    db: {
      url: `file:${isProd ? join(process.resourcesPath, 'resources/database.db') : join(__dirname, '../resources/database.db')}`,

with these configs I could fetch data from my sqlite DB
