How to Change the Default Values in SETUP.APP in Dist Kit

ID: Q101589

2.50 2.50a WINDOWS

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, versions 2.5 and 2.5a

SUMMARY

NOTE: This article does not apply to Visual FoxPro for Windows.

SETUP.APP (the FoxPro for Windows Distribution Kit SetupWizard) uses the information you supply at the various SETUP.APP prompts as default values in future sessions. This information is stored in the DKSETUP.INI file.

To reset the current defaults, delete all copies of DKSETUP.INI. One copy is in the FoxPro development directory (usually FOXPROW), and a second copy is in the directory that contains your application files. The next time SETUP.APP is run, it prompts you for new information and rebuilds both copies of DKSETUP.INI.

MORE INFORMATION

SETUP.APP prompts you for information it needs to build its setup program (SETUP.EXE), such as where to find the application files and where to place the disk images. This information is stored in DKSETUP.INI, which is stored in your application directory. A second copy is also placed in the FoxPro development directory. SETUP.APP first reads the copy of DKSETUP.INI in the development directory. After you specify which directory contains your application files, it uses the DKSETUP.INI file (if it exists) in that directory.

NOTE: You can edit the DKSETUP.INI file with any text editor, such as the FoxPro program editor or Windows Notepad.
