My VFP9 is installed on my personal computer with MS Windows XP. I am running created application on machine with Windows Server 08. With old report forms (.frx) it was everything OK. But if I am making some modification of old report form using VFP9 SP2, modified REPORT on server is displaying with some delay.
The report forms are excluded from application and stored in externel directory. Sorry for my poor backgrounds, but what means SP2 runtimes.
If the reports are run in another box from the development machine (a "Production environment"), you need to have your program (EXE) and the runtime files for Visual Foxpro (a set of DLLs) for the proper version. So, if your program is compiled with Visual Foxpro 9 Service Pack 2 (SP2), then you need those runtimes installed in the production computers. If the version of the runtime DLLs installed do not match the version you used to compile your EXE all kinds of problems may arise.
I have created setup program with InstallShield including Runtime Library module. I am using this Setup program to install my application in destination computers. I found another thing, if I am installing application in the destination computer with OS Windows XP it works OK, but the problems arise if I install application in the destination computer with OS Windows Server@08.
You may try to install on other computer without InstallShield.....or try with:
If you are using new report format (90) you may need to have in code:
