FIX: BUILD EXE Command Not Working in Command Window

ID: Q100437

2.50 WINDOWS kbprg kbfixlist kbbuglist kbdocerr

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, version 2.5
  • Microsoft FoxPro Distribution Kit for Windows, version 2.5


The BUILD EXE command does not work in the Command window of FoxPro 2.5 for Windows.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in FoxPro 2.5 for Windows. This problem was corrected in FoxPro 2.5a for Windows.


A discrepancy exists in the FoxPro Distribution Kit for Windows documentation. On page 16 of the Distribution Kit's "User's Guide," under the heading "With the BUILD EXE Command," the text correctly states:

Instead of using the Project window, you can use the BUILD EXE command to create an .EXE file. With BUILD EXE, you can create an .EXE file in a program or the Command window.

However, on page L3-253 of the FoxPro 2.5 "Language Reference" manual, under "Remarks," the text states:

FoxPro for MS-DOS only The Help file in FoxPro for Windows directs the reader to the Distribution

Kit's "User's Guide." The remark on page L3-253 of the FoxPro 2.5 "Language Reference" is incorrect.
