Hi Bob,

In my experience ["file" is not an object file (Error 1309)] may occur when certain compiled-code files are damaged, invalid (header) bytes, say because of HDD or copy failures or AV tools blocking them etc.,
or also sometimes when something like an EXE or DLL was compiled in an VFP version that does not match the current run-time DLL versions.
