Compile a dbase IV program to make a EXE program.

I made a dbase IV program (e.g. abc.prg), but the compiler in Dbase IV only compiled it to a abc.dbo file. Is it possible to compile it (may be using other compiler??) to a exe program, so that this exe program can be run in other computer without the dbase IV program..??

If possible, kindly expand briefly how to do it.

The only compiler I know is "Borland's Visual dBASE" (Ithink version 5.5 or beter).

once uppon a time when I worked with dBase there was a dBase-environment called 'Clipper'. It was easy to make an exe-file. Maybe 'clipper' exists today?

Similar to MI, I moved to foxpro (now a MS product) which was also a dbase clone - It comes with an .exe which can give a runtime interpretation of your application.

You need Clipper.  It is easy to install, it is only a folder to copy.

Once it is there, put your .prg in ..\Clipper\Clipper5\Bin\

From that folder, open a DOS Window and type these 2 commands:


1)   CLIPPER <FileName>
                                         2)   RTLINK FILE <FileName>
