Troubleshooting Setup.exe errors
by DevX Pro
I am trying to create a setup.exe for VFP 5.0, using the setup wizard. After I installed the application using the setup.exe and ran the program, I got error 1984 in one of my tables. All the other tables in the database work well. To create the setup.exe I had to place all the necessary files into a distribution directory. When I run app.exe from this directory I don't get any errors, and the tables and DB are fine. This leads me to conclude that something is corrupting my table during the setup wizard or during the installation of my application from the setup.exe program. The first couple times I created the setup.exe I didn't have these problems, since then I haven't changed the DB or the tables, just the foxpro code.
Deleting a structure from disk
by DevX Pro
I have written a videoshop program in C++. I need to be able to delete a video structure off the disk. At the moment, the user enters a video number, the program searches the disk and finds the video, but I'm not sure how to delete this structure and edit the file on disk. (The file is in binary.)

Primary Key Identity
by DevX Pro
I have installed Service Pack 4 for SQL Server and Service Pack 4 for NT. I still receive this same error. Your Q&A suggests that this problem was fixed in one of the service packs. I suppose the only fix is a scheduled DBCC check on each table in the database?

VB and ISP and Web-based analysis
by DevX Pro
I have numerous data analysis programs written in VB4/5 that I would like to put on a server for server-based data analysis. It would require uploading data files from the client (through a browser), then performing data analysis based on user requirements, then downloading data and generating plots for paper-based plotting. My questions is: what are the limitations if I try to use an ISP (such as Hiway.com), or must I use a dedicated II server? Rick
