    Excutable


    Hello,

    I have just created an geography application that is around 500K. I will
    like to distribute it to some people who don't have VFP. Is there a way I
    could create an executable where they don't need to have the large VFP dlls.

    In other words I don't want to distribute a bunch of large files. Is there
    a way to keep it small?

    Thanks

    Louis

    No. You need to have the VFP runtime files in order to execute your
    application.

    One thing that might help make your EXE smaller--go to the Project Info
    screen and make sure you don't have the "Debug info" checkbox checked.
