Thread: Updating Applications

    Updating Applications


    Hi People
    When updating applications, is it necessary to do a full installation or
    is it possible to just transfer the altered files and re-build the application
    on the client`s machine.
    The Client has Visual Studio installed on his machine. I have successfully
    copied the altered files over a few times but the last time I tried it I
    got a - Project Memo File Invalid error.
    Has copying the files in this way caused the error or is it due to some other
    reason - Thanks

    Re: Updating Applications

    Shouldn't have. But it sounds like you either didn't copy all the files you
    needed, or the .PJT file became corrupt during the transfer.

    Thanks for the prompt reply Bill.
    Is there a way of creating a valid .PJT file from the existing project file
    or should I rebuild the complete project?

    Re: Updating Applications

    Well, if you can open your project at your location, then you already have a
    valid .PJT, just send the files again to your client and see what happens.

    Beyond that, I don't know how to recover from an invalid .PJT without using
    a backup copy. There are a few VFP file recovery tools on the market that
    you may want to take a look at. Check out www.hallogram.com

    Good luck.

    Thanks again Bill for the advice.
    The Application compiles OK and returns the Memo file Invalid Error. When
    I run the Application, it is looking for one of my tables in a backup directory
    and says it can`t find it, even though the a copy of the table exists in
    that directory.
    It is all very strange

    Re: Updating Applications

    To reconstruct a project you can make a new project file, add the main
    program, do a SET PATH in the command window and build the project. VFP
    will add in the files that it needs as long as it can find them.
