I have AVFP 6.03 working in Win 7 64 bit home premium.

Is it possible to install ver 5.53 in the above machine?... prefer to have both versions side by side if possible.

5.53 is required because I need to trace thru my VFP procedures. I really like 6.03 but tracing is really needed for my web module.

If not, then how do I cleanly uninstall 6.03 and install 5.53? I have the limitation of not having XP-mode in my machine.

BTY.. I was able to call my CS system prgs by simple set proc pointers. It was amazing.

Yes, they will work side by side just fine.

Hi Claudefox,

I downloaded the AVFP 553 installer and source.

After installer ( and source copy over) finished, the start page showed OK.
However, the PJT file is reporting as corrupt when I try to compile the VFP project.
If I fix the PJT file ( by recreating the Apps with other files), then the Default.aspx reports COM error similar to com not found and URL fails.

I've tried registering & unregistering ActiveVFP.dll..(both as 32 and then as 64 bit dll) but it does not work.
Can you replicate if PTJ file is reporting a memo field error at your end?

Now, if I use the original DLL ( from codeplex) and try to debug, I get the error below. Not sure if these two issues are connected but I am running out of next steps that I can check.

Thanks for the help.

The VS debug.aspx error is as follows. This is when I use the original ( i.e. downloaded from codeplex) version of ActiveVFP.dll

System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException was unhandled by user code
Message=Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {BEF60CED-FB7C-4835-A927-4EC90F5162CB} failed due to the following error: 80040154.
