Valhalla is a tool developed by Pablo Flores which he used over the last 3 years or so. He wrote it after getting tired of forgetting the name and location of VFP projects.

Pablo Flores is the president of Isengard Corporation and wrote Valhalla.
It's a toolbar written in VFP 7 and is run from within the development environment. You simply point out the projects you're working on and where they're located and when you right click on the "Proj" button, you get a list of all the projects. When you select one it switches to that subdirectory, makes it the default, and opens it.

It also has several standard buttons, for example to clear and reset the environment and one to launch the Windows explorer with the the current project's directory as the default.

In addition you can add your own custom defined buttons that execute any vfp commands and they popup on the toolbar ready for use.

Valhalla can be found at www.valhallatech.net . The zip file contains valhalla, a macro file, a config.fpw file, a small prg and a help file.
