Re: Visual Prolog and Windows XP

I am using VIP 7.5 CE on WinXP SP3 and previously was using VIP 7.5 PE on the same computer without problems. Installation went smoothing for 7.5 PE and later for CE. I am using the full MS Office 2003 suite and had no problems with VIP corrupting that installation. From time to time I have some fil...

I have an application in VIP 5.2 that uses a temporary file and it required a "wait until the file appears" loop to avoid "file not found" errors. Apparently the code would complete quickly, but the directory information was not updated before my application tried to read that file. If you can see t...

Re: Visual Prolog Help files

I have an old hypertext help file (.hlp) created by Visual-prolog 4 or 5. I am aware that the newer versions are not capable of creating help files (unfortunately), but any suggestion to enable me to open, copy/paste or at least view such a file will be greatly appreciated. Try these (I haven't act...

How to correct failed online order for VIP CE?

Yesterday I tried twice to order VIP 7.5 CE and received an error message: I replaced transaction ID with XXXXXXXX: Error: Session timeout has been expired. Number for the transaction XXXXXXXX. Please contact PDC. I have emailed sales@visual-prolog.com, but have yet to get a response. My VISA has be...

Search Only Title on Discussion Forums ?

Is there a way to search only the topic Title for text?

It seems that this could result in fewer irrelevant query results in some circumstances. Maybe I've missed something on the screen.

Thomas, Yes, I sent the internal error dialog info 2 or 3 times, at least twice with a comment in the "what were you doing?" field. I think I have sorted out my problem -- I was creating a New package which was overwriting the original Glinda library files (fortunately backed up). I wasn't certain w...

Paul, Good suggestion, but the '.' in the directory name was not the cause of the internal error problem in this case. After renaming the suspect directory, I removed all my personal IDE variables and any reference to them in the Include settings. I then restarted the IDE, tried to create a new IDE ...

Thomas, Thanks for your explanation on managed my "Glinda" library code. I have not been able to make it work on my system, however. My understanding of the process is thus: (1) Create an IDE variable with it's value set to the directory of my library; (2) add an include path by pointing to the libr...

Managing previously created "external" Packages in a project

I've seen this addressed somewhere in the VIP 7.x discussion, but can't find it. :-( When using VIP 5.2 I managed my library of useful routines by including my primary stable utility code module (Glinda.pro & glinda.pre) within one module of my project, typically in the "App.pro" and "App.pre" files...

All My Recent Documents belong to VIP 7.5 !

I just noticed that when I open a single project in VIP 7.5 PE the My Recent Documents folder is completely filled with all the projects listed in the project selection menu of the VIP IDE! While this is not necessarily the end of Western civilization as we know it, it did find it annoying as I was ...

Use this until you craft your own flexible dialog to accomdate a greater, variable number of buttons:

Code: Select all

        Title = "Do you want to do XXX?",         Choices = ["Yes","No","Always","Never"],         b_true = listSelect(Title,Choices,-1,PickedStr,_),
