Including FXP file in project

Including FXP file in project

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?



RE: Including FXP file in project


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.
