How do I send email from Foxpro 9 in windows 7 Pro 64 bit (outlook is installed)
Posted on 2015-01-23
I have a FOXPRO/CDO snippet that works perfectly fine on xp pro as long as the windows component SMTP mail service is installed, but fails with a sendusing configuration not valid in windows 7 pro 64 bit. I looked at the net for solutions, but there was a lot of contradictory postings. I think the reason its not working is that CDOSYS.DLL doesn't work if Outlook 2007 or higher is installed on the workstation. I do have an ASP object called SMTP that shows up under IIS manager.
So has anybody sent email from VFP in a different way ? E.g by calling .net routines?
Any comments about does this work using RDO (redemption) or WestWind)
