Is is possible to add a compiled program to a VFP 9 project and use it in the IDE or is it only functional in as part of the executable?  I bought the Commercial version of XFRX, which comes with the compiled program (FXP), not the source code(PRG).

I added the FXP file to the Programs and tried calling the program per the documentation:


VFP doesn't seem to recognize the compiled file as a program.  I get the error dialog:

File 'xfrx.prg' does not exist.

Do I need to have the source code?

No, you don't need the source code. The most likely explanation is that you don't have the XFRX\xfrxlib directory in your search path.

Thanks.  After fixing the search path, it worked as advertised.  I've never dealt with a compiled VPF program before, so I was overlooking the obvious.
