Error instantiating class - cannot find *.vcx-file

Error instantiating class - cannot find *.vcx-file

Error instantiating class - cannot find *.vcx-file

(OP)
Ich habe eine VFP Form vom Desktop auf einen USB-Stick kopiert und
versuchte diese Form auf einem Laptop (ebenfalls mit installiertem VFP 9) aufzurufen.
Es kam diese Fehlermeldung:

"error instantiating class - cannot find (mypath)\wizards\wizembess.vcx"

Wo kann ich diese vcx-Datei finden?

Thanks for an advice.

Klaus

RE: Error instantiating class - cannot find *.vcx-file

Hi,

Well you'll have to check IF and WHERE the file wizembess.vcx exists/is on your laptop. If the form is correctly instantiated on your home PC this file surely is saved there and you'll have to copy it along with the form files.

I agree with Mark. The best thing is to place the VCX on the laptop in a directory with the same name as on the original system. Alternatively, remove the hard-coded path and then use either SET PATH or SET CLASSLIB to locate the VCX.

Oh sorry, I just see that my question was written in my native language.
As I can see, this could already be understood. Hats off!
Here is the translation:


I copied a VFP form from the desktop to a USB stick and
tried to call this form on a laptop (also with VFP 9 installed).
This error message came up:

"error instantiating class - cannot find (mypath) \ wizards \ wizembess.vcx"

Where can I find this vcx file?

No problem, Klaus. Wir sind hier nicht alle englischsprachige Monoglots.

Hi Klaus,

I think you should be looking for wizemboss.vcx. I think this comes with VFP and perhaps something was misspelled somewhere?

Regards, Gerrit

RE: Error instantiating class - cannot find *.vcx-file

Hi,

The two files that come with VFP9 are located in "...\Microsoft Visual Foxpro 9\Wizards" and are spelled wizembss.vcx and .vct - no "e" between "b" and "s".

Thank you, dear friends, I was given good advice on this question too.
It was about this module, which I created with a wizard under VFP.
(at the moment I don't remember which wizard it was).


Now, thanks to your advice, I have found out that I still needed the following files to get the program to work on the laptop.

wizbase.vcx
wizembss.vcx
wizembss.vct


I found these necessary files in my computer here:


So Gerrit and Mark - you were right (I made a typo in my request for a file name (wizembss ist oorrect).

I don't (yet) know whether it's always just these three files that you need.

Thanks again.
Klaus

That depends on which wizards you used to create the forms. You'll find all the wizard-files in the "...\Microsoft Visual Foxpro 9\Wizards" subfolder and its subfolders.
