Therefore - Yes, you can mark this or that module in your Project as "Excluded", as long as the application built on this Project is called by another application, and this module (MainLib.PRG in your case) is not excluded in that other, top level one. I guess MainLib module is added to the Projects for those called applications for the purpose of testing them as a stand-alone application in the VFP's IDE? (This is what I have been doing for many, many years.)

Not exactly, the module mainlib is included in all the projects from which a lower-level apps are built for one very good reason - the projects will not compile without it (all those missing call links you know).

But yes, adding mainlib.prg to the project then excluding it seems to satisfy everyone. The project knows about the links, they are satisfield by a top-level .app and then that is the only .app that needs to be recompiled after a change within mainlib.prg which was the original driver of this thread. So thanks.
