I'm trying to setup some way to trigger the foxbin2prg to be called for all applicable files in the entire project (frx, lbx, scx, pjx) - what is the best way to do this? is there a PRG program I can run that will do this?

You can generate text files for each file in a Project with this call from the command window or a prg: DO "<<Path>>\FoxBin2Prg.prg" WITH <<Project.pjx>>, "*"

The FoxBin2Prg is pretty well documented on this page: http://vfpx.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=FoxBin2Prg

You can see various examples of how to use the tool, and links to many advanced features and usage instructions.

i'm new to using source control in vfp

i downloaded and copied the foxbin2prg to my local drive and pointed what used to point to the built-in text generator of binary files to foxbin2prg.prg in that directory and it does not appear to work.

i tried running it as stated against the project file and it made no files that I could find

I enabled the tfs mssci provider and it appears to have the same issue as it says

Could not find file 'c:\code\fsvfp17x\pasmakr.sca'.

and i cannot find any files except for the scx and sct files for the form that is in the project

what should i do?
