Creates a standard application (.app) file from a Visual FoxPro project.
Before using the BUILD APP command, make sure that the project contains all files needed for the application. If required files are missing during the build, Visual FoxPro generates an error. For more information, see.
BUILD APP APPFileName FROM ProjectName [RECOMPILE]
Specifies the file name of the application to build. The default file name extension is .app.
If an executable (.exe) file exists with the same root file name as the .app file you create, the .exe file is deleted.
- FROM ProjectName
Specifies the name of the project from which the application is built.
Specifies that the project be compiled before the application file is built. All program and format files; form, label, report, and visual class library source code; and stored procedures in databases in the project are compiled.
