I need to create a Foxpro 2.6 project. How do I go about setting up the environment and any files for the project to code compile and link the project.

You can start by creating a folder. Create all the tables you need. Use the menu or wizard to create them. I would arrange the tables in one subfolder, library code in another and pictures in another.

To write a small program:
MODIFY PROGRAM search

To create a screen:
MODIFY SCREEN login

then proceed to create a project, app or an executable:
MODIFY PROJECT myapp

To create a configuration file:
MODIFY FILE config.fpw

You can add previous code/files/tables from other folders into the project.

It is pretty straight forward from the inside. However, you will come across many details along the way which you can ask on this site and we will help you.

Thank you captain.

I also need to purchase FOXPRO 2.6 for DOS. What products do I need in order to create and distribute builds?

You need a distribution kit which came separately at that time to build stand alone executables (.exe). Otherwise you can only build an application (.app) and need FoxPro application to run it.
