Just a note on alternatives to the included Async class (example here:http://thetechconsult.com/demo/default.aspx?action=thread) to start long running vfp background
tasks from a web application with periodic updates to the browser (long reports,long calculations, etc):
- the inlcluded Async class relies on the "DEP" feature of your processor either being turned off or not present
- Easier alternative #1 - use the
ParallelFox application at VFPx. However, you'll loose some of the scalability and speed since VFP processes instead of threads are used
- Alternative #2 - More intriguing would be to use the CreateThreadObject in the VFPx
FP2C32 FLL project which would create background VFP threads.
