FoxPro File Associations and Working Directory
Posted on 2014-04-23
I have recently migrated FoxPro to a Server 2012 R2 environment. This server has many scheduled tasks that run and it's having issues.
1. First off, PRG's don't execute when they're referenced in the scheduled task. It only opens them for editing (which is wrong)
2. Secondly, when the scheduled task executes, it's ignoring the 'Start in' directive. All of these programs need to start in the directory above where the program actually resides, but for some reason it's ignoring that. So when it tries to DO a program within the program the task scheduler calls, the path is off and it errors and stops.
Any help fixing these two issues would be greatly appreciated. For the first issue, I have tried the VFP9.exe /RegServer and it doesn't seem to be changing anything.
