FoxTabs in EXE?

I recently downloaded and installed FoxTabs. In the IDE, it works beautifully and is really helpful. However, I have a compiled application in which the users often have many windows open at the same time. I thought it would be just as helpful to my users to have a tabbed list of all running windows. I managed to get FoxTabs running in an executable, but it doesn't work well at all. It doesn't always bring up the window of the tab you click on. It doesn't seem to be able to differentiate between two instances of the same form.

Is there a way to get Foxtabs to work in an EXE? Or is it simply not meant to be used outside the IDE?

Hi Kevin,

It is really designed to be used with the VFP IDE. All work was done towards that goal. I know some have tried to use it within their app. I don't know how successful they were, but I don't use it for that purpose.
