FPW 2.6 EXE Freezes Windows??

FPW 2.6 EXE Freezes Windows??

Post by Steve Colonn » Thu, 15 Jun 1995 04:00:00

After a few months of effort I have finally distributed my FPW 2.6
application to around 150 clients.  Everything seems to be okay except for 3
of the installations.  What these 3 are experiencing is that as soon as they
double click on the applications icon in the program manager, Windows freezes
and they have to re-boot?

I have never struck this before, and was wondering if any one out in
*space has come across this?

Thinking that they may have a corrupt file or two, I have sent them a new set
of distribution disks, however, the problem persists.

What would be the next move, an examination of their CONFIG.SYS and INI

Any help will be greatfully accepted.

I've had a similar problem with 2.6 EXE files freezing Lotus cc:Mail.  It  
doesn't lock the system, but instead bogs the system down for about 8  
minutes (can't toggle between apps or anything) and after the 8 minutes  
cc:Mail continues as if nothing has happened.  The people running the EXE  
have nothing but an icon on their machine that points to the EXE on a  
server.  Our networks are Novell 3.12 server and 4.0 client and  
the problem doesn't happen with Windows NT.  If anyone has any leads, let  
me know; our user support can't figure out the problem, and the Foxpro  
and cc:mail tech support haven't been any help whatsoever.




1. Windows help compiler hc31.exe and FPW 2.6

I have troubles with the windows help compiler hc31.exe, which is
delivered with FoxPro for Windows 2.6. (I know, this posting is perhaps
off-topic, but I could not find any suitable newsgroup)
Is there anybody, who has experience with the hc31.exe yet? Or is there
anybody, who knows a newsgroup for hc31.exe problems?
(BTW the problem is a undocumented error. If anyone is interested
in more details, I will love telling these).
Thanks for any help in advance.
