PostPosted: Visual FoxPro General, No changes apply after build exe Top

I have add in new form, make amendment to the menu for existing project. Then I rebuild the project and rebuild the exe file. However no changes seems to apply in exe when i run the exe file in live environment. I make all the changes in my test environment, when I run the exe in my test environment the changes apply. When I put it in live environment no changes apply. I wonder what's wrong with my step on building the exe. Please guide me on how to add in new form in the existing project, make changes and generate menu, plus building project and exe file in visual foxpro 6. Thanks.

First, check the obvious.

  • Are you sure you are compiling (building) the latest forms Check the date-time stamp and the folder.
  • Are you sure you are running the latest EXE Check the datetimestamp in development and in production boxes.

It has happened to me once and it turned out that I had moved the exe to a wrong folder and the one I was trying to run was the previous version. SIlly, but strange things happen when you are tired.

That is strange.

Next test. In you main PRG (or Form) put a temporary messagebox with some debugging text before anything else.

Compile and run the exe. Does the message show

put set step on in the menu item where u are calling the form and run the app or prg. if u go to trace mode and the form u have connected to menu item is running then do the following.

delete the exe file u are creating

purge (if lan)

now rebuild ur exe with rebuild all option(remove set step on)

now run ur exe
