Hello, I just download the latest version and perform the my very first test, following the instructions, VFP9 (SP2)  hang up when running the test form.

I used the first sample described on Foxcharts Samples (basic samples)

Any idea? Thank you all.

Hi FcoMc,

It seems that there is something with your environment.

Were you able to open the sample forms from the project manager ?

Do you have VFP installed in another machine to tst it ?

HI,
Well, the problem is when I run the form in VFP 9 hangs there, if I run the compiled program (Exe) gives the following error: No. 2071,
Structured exception unhandled, procedure _beforedraw line 223.
There is no problem when I open the sample form from de PM.
Thanks.

Take into consideration the following that I got help on Foxit, this solved the problem of crash (hang up):
"Hi Francisco,

Can you make sure either SET TALK is set to OFF -or- SET STATUS BAR is set to ON?

If these 2 commands are set together, VFP will lock up when you assign a VarBinary value to a variable:

ie:
SET TALK ON
SET STATUS BAR OFF
x = 0h40

Craig Boyd and I discovered this issue yesterday when tracking down a similar issue for Sergio.

Thanks,
Bo Durban
