Before using the BUILD APP command, make sure that the project contains all files needed for the application. If required files are missing during the build, Visual FoxPro generates an error. For more information, see Working with Projects.

If an executable (.exe) file exists with the same root file name as the .app file you create, the .exe file is deleted.

Specifies the name of the project from which the application is built.
