Making .exe (executable) means building application. So you may find answer of this question here.
Anyway I will work to re-describe the process by a simpler way:
Almost every HMG sample have two .bat file: build.bat and ide.bat and using these files are quite simple:
Open command / console window, go to directory ( by CD command) of the sample you want to compile, and enter a simple command :
build demo <- will build demo.exe from demo.prg or ide demo <- open HMG-IDE with demo.prg
( IDE will wait your “run” command by pressing “run” button.)
So you may use this two .bat files for your projects too.
Copy build.bat and / or ide.bat to your working <dir>, and modify them this way:
call c:\hmg\build.bat <myProject> | <myProgram>
c:\hmg\ide\ide.exe <myProject> | <myProgram>
Note : in this syntax “|” means “or”; you don’t need enter both project and program file names nor this sign; simply enter either one or other.
– “c:\hmg\” depending on your environment (installation); such as c:\hmg.3.1.1\ or antything else;
– <myProject> | <myProgram> to your project / program file name.
Project file is a text file with “.hbp” extension and contains a list of name(s) of your program file(s).
After building such .hbp file, you may open it from directly HMG-IDE ( by “open project command) and again, you may build your .exe by pressing “run” button.
