    How do I compile my .PRG to an .EXE file?
    You need to put your .PRG into a project and build the whole project.

    Why does my .EXE window appear then vanish when I run it? Why does it not appear at all?
    You are probably missing a READ EVENTS line, which tells VFP to go into an event loop.

    Does my end-user need any files other than the .EXE?
    They'll need any data files. See VFP 9 Runtime Files.
