Project Manager: Steve Ellenoff (sellenoff AT

Place the demo folder in the same folder as your win7Tlib source folder as the sample code expects this.

For example, if you downloaded the source to C:\Win7TLib\Source, place the demo folder in C:\Win7TLib\Demo. It would look like this:

    Source	<Folder>
    Demo	<Folder>

To run demo interactively in VFP, CD to the demo's source folder and run from there. For example to run the VCX demo's do:

cd "c:\Win7TLib\demo\vcx\source\"

Then run the appropriate demo_xxx.prg, ie, demo_tdi.prg for the TDI example.

All code was tested on VFP 9 SP2 and Windows 7 32Bit & 64Bit.

Thank you

Jim Nelson for sitting with me (seemed like all night) in the Business Center of the Legado Hotel during SWFOX 2010 to get my project pages put together and show me how VFPx works.

Doug Hennig for spending time during SWFOX 2010 to give me an initial review of how to setup my pages here.

Bo Durban for your suggestions many months ago on checking out the PrintWindow() API to solve some problems of capturing a window that did not have focus or was overlapped.
