I am missing the cmctl198.chm file for my VFP 9.0.  Can anyone help me out here...?

    Accepted Solution

    The file you are asking about was included and referenced in VFP8.  However, I don't see it referenced in the VFP9 Help nor do I have it on my hard drive on this PC.

    In the VFP9 Help under the ActiveX Controls Overview, it states:

    "Note: Help files for these ActiveX controls are available when MSDN is installed."

    MSDN Home >  MSDN Library >  Development Tools and Languages >  Visual FoxPro >  Using Visual FoxPro >  Developing Visual FoxPro Applications >  Creating Applications >  Creating the User Interface >  Using Controls >  Controls for Extending Forms

    I personally think the part that says "when MSDN is installed" is not very clear or helpful.

    But, I'm told MSDN here means MSDN Library via MSDN subscription or VS.Net installation.

    For future reference, you can post your FoxPro questions in the FoxPro section.
