    Importing Visual FoxPro 8 DBC

    I just downloaded the demo Mac version of App Builder and wanted to import a DBC in use in a web app to practice on. I clicked on Data, right clicked and choose Import VFP Database. Once started I got an error message to view the error in Console. Looking in Console I found the following error:

    **** Lianja error ****
    create database "test"
    ^
    Could not create database '/Users/myFolder/Library/Application Support/Lianja/data/test/'
    Called from program - vfp_import_dbc.dbo at line 15

    Since this is my first attempt at using Lianja I realize I may have done something wrong but no way to know what. Can someone please help me to start importing databases so I may try to get an app working?

    Hi Joe,

    Unfortunately you cannot import VFP dbc databases on the Mac it has to be done on windows. Once you have the database imported on windows you can just copy it over to the Mac or linux as the data is interoperable between each of the supported operating systems.

    Thanks Barry. That to some degree makes sense. I'll download it to my Windows server and import from there.
