Sudhir,

I would reccomend you not build your .exe into the same folder the project is in. Instead create a 'projects' folder where you keep all your project source and another folder where you build the app to. I had a similar problem like you described when I first started using foxpro and I think it might be because you are building an app instead of an exe. Anyway, after I seperated my exe fro my project folder my problem disapeared.

BTW: can anyone tell me why you would build an .app instead of a .exe? I would like top know.

toms,
