What Setup Installs

VPM Enterprise Directories

Setup creates a \vpme91 directory on your hard disk with the following subdirectories and copies the VPM Enterprise files to these directories:

Subdirectories

Contents

\Bitmaps

Bitmap files.

\Builders

Project and source code files for VPME form and control builders.

\Data

Database and table files used by VPME.

\Forms

Forms used by VPME.

\Menus

\New project

Customizable Developer menu files.

Template files for new VPME applications.

\Prgs

Program files used by VPME.

\Reports

Report files used by VPME.

\Vsa

VPME Sample Application

Tip:  Do not change the names of the VPME subdirectories. If you do, VPME will not know where its files reside. Also, dont move any of the files VPME puts into its home directory to another directory.

VPM Enterprise Command Line

Setup creates a Command Line to run VPME with the following form:

C:\vpme91\vpm.exe cvpm.fpw

If you should ever need to manually enter this command line, be sure theres no space between the -c and vpm.fpw:. C:\VPME91 is the normal VPM Enterprise home directory. If you install VPME on a different drive or in a different directory, C:\vpme91 should reflect the correct drive and directory in which you installed VPME.

VPM.EXE is a starter program that runs Visual FoxPro and loads VPM.APP, the VPM Enterprise application file.

When VPME loads, the FoxPro configuration file is set to SAPPFCNF.FPW located in the VPM Enterprise home directory.

VPM Enterprise Configuration File

The SAPPFCNF.FPW FoxPro configuration file for VPM Enterprise contains:

_STARTUP =
SCREEN = OFF
RESOURCE = 'C:\VPME91\DATA\SAPPFRES'
DEFAULT = 'C:\VPME91'
_GENMENU = 'C:\VPME91\PRGS\GENMENUX.PRG'
_MNXDRV2 = C:\VPME91\PRGS\SSYSIMNU.PRG

If you install VPME on a different drive or in a different directory, C:\VPME91 should reflect the correct drive and directory in which you installed VPME.

If you run VPM.APP directly from Visual FoxPro, your FoxPro configuration file must contain the lines shown above.

VPM Enterprise Resource File

Setup installs VPMEs own FoxPro resource file (SAPPFRES.DBF).
