Where to specify _genmenu

When I try to generate a new Project i get a message "Cannot find the menĂº generation program". What do I have to do where?

RE: Where to specify _genmenu

1. Go to Toosl -> Options -> File Locations.

2. Scroll down to Menu Builder.

3. Click Modify.

4. Type the name and path of GENMENU.PRG (Or click the three dots and navigate to that program; it will be in your main VFP directory.)

5. Then click Set As Default, then OK.

RE: Where to specify _genmenu

If this is not the only system variable not set, not the only file location missing in options, you should try to get the settings back to normal by starting a new foxuser.dbf or perhaps DO vfpclean.app

Bye, Olaf.
