Dave 03 Mar 2004 I have several small office applications written in Foxpro. Years ago I bought some of them up from Foxpro 2.6 & FPW 3.x into the what was then the newest 'Foxpro', 5.x, and then wrote a few more apps. When later on 6.0 had been out for a while I tried to move up to that version. To that point all I had to do when distributing an application was to put the exe, two Dlls, DBFs and a few other files in a directory on the local network protected by the appropriate NT security. Then put an shortcut on the users desktop pointing that exe. With lots of changes in our office responsibilties this is easy to connect new workstations to these apps. With 6.0 that all changed to have to setup the apps on each computer even though the exe and dbfs could be shared on the network. This is what I had to do with VB apps (which is one among other reasons I didn't use VB alot). I tried to putting all the files the 6.0 setup wizard was putting on each computer on the network in the exe's directory but it didn't work. I guess this is because of the files not being registered properly in the setup. I was hoping that Foxpro would just look for these files in that directory first without checking the registry The upshot of all this is that all the apps are still on 5.x . I suppose that I could set up one VFP 6.0 app on each workstation and then as long as the rest of the apps used the same componets they would not require an individual setup. Before I go that route I'm wondering if there is a way to run 6.0 ( or actually I have 7.0 now) the way that I ran the 5.x apps on the network ??
