Tools and services for FoxPro developers
Make your upgrades of ActiveX control painless.
Do you dread having to upgrade your ActiveX controls to new versions?
How many times have you tried to open a form or class and got an error message saying:
This is normally caused by the version of the control on your computer not being the same as that used in the for in the Class or Form.
This can happen when the control on your computer has been replaced by a newer, or older, version when you installed some software or upgraded the controls supplied by the manufacture to the latest version.
You cannot open the class or Form in the normal way to change the control.
Just think of all that code you have lost!
OLE Fixer is a Visual FoxPro Developers tool that allows you to replace all the old ActiveX controls in Classes and Forms in a directory in one go.
It will search though the files in a directory and provides you with a list of OLE / ActiveX controls that are contained in the Classes and form.
You then select the new controls to replace the old ones with and mark which ones you want to replace.
Click on the replace button and OLE Fixer will replace the old version of the control with the new one for all the Classes and Forms in the directory.
The information is saved and you can then select another directory to replace controls in.
OLE Fixer will save you HOURS of development time and pay for itself in the time you save converting to new ActiveX controls.
