The NetExtender and the NetCompiler are two different things.
As to the Extender. It is a tool that allows developers to incorporate the Net framework classes (as far as they are public) into the VFP applications.
So for that part you need VFP.
The compiler is just that, a compiler that runs in VFP. You can then create .Net assemblies and executables and asp assemblies through the compiler option.
The VFP Developer Studio is a product, based on the SharpDevelopment environment.
Indeed it is a separate product but ships with the Extender/Compiler.
The product is not fully developed yet, but hey, it took MS quite some years to get there, so I think the eTecnologia guys are doing a good job.
The price is right, $120. (a little less than €100). So I bought the stuff and am playing around with it.
The website indeed could be a bit better, but they rather improve the product.
The truth will set you free, Ken knew the truth!
