  1. Unable to Compile Applications in the Studio?

    by , 3-Nov-2011 at 01:21 PM (Development Team Blog)
    Do you use Windows 7 or Windows Vista? Are you having problems compiling your application in the Studio?

  2. Precompilation in Visual DataFlex - Set it and Forget it!

    by , 27-Jul-2009 at 02:03 PM (Development Team Blog)
    During the development of Visual DataFlex 12.0 we modified the compiler to track any changes to source code that belong to a precompiled package. For example, let's say you have a precompiled package (MyPrecompile.pkg) and one of the files used by MyPrecompile.pkg was edited since it was last precompiled. Now, when you go to compile a project that uses this precompile, the Compiler would detect the change and raise an error that the precompile is out of date.

    This was a good change ...
