Hi, I dug out an old VFP program, re-installed VFP v9 on an XP computer to make some modifications on the program. But I soon got stuck on a banal problem:

 

I create a variable like X = "\e:\My Documents\Visual Foxpro Projects\MyProject"

 

and try to use it like

 

CHDIR &x

 

But that is impossible, I get invalid path error.

 

The same code has worked before, why not now? I haven't tried to boot up my Win7 drive to test it there,  yet but since I will keep using XP as long as possible, I hope there may be a solution.

Cannot say specifically in Visual Fox Pro, but a path has NOT a leading backslash, it begins with either the drive letter (followed by a colon) or the "special" "." or ".." directories for relative paths.
