What is a PRG file?

Text program file used by Visual FoxPro, a development tool used for creating Windows database applications; contains one or more commands often instructing FoxPro to load a form or window designed within the software; often contains a "DO" command.

More Information

PRG files allow programs to be run within the Visual FoxPro environment. However, they are not Windows executable files. Therefore, you must first compile the program into a Windows executable in order to run it outside of Visual FoxPro.

NOTE: FoxPro, the predecessor to Visual FoxPro, is an xBase variant, so FoxPro PRG files may be similar to those found in other xBase programming environments, such as Clipper, dBFast, and older versions of dBASE.

Many PRG files can be found in the Downloads section of Commander X16's official website. These files contain games, productivity apps, and other programs that can be opened in a Commander X16 emulator.

Those who want to open the program a PRG file contains in their web browser can do so by clicking the Try it now button that appears on the program's download page. Otherwise, users can download the program's PRG file and open it in the PC versions of the Commander X16 emulator.

How do I open a PRG file?

You can open a PRG (Commander X16 Program) file in the Commander X16 emulator (cross-platform). To run a PRG program from a terminal window:

  1. Make sure your Commander X16 emulator and your PRG file are stored in the same directory.
  2. Open a terminal window and navigate to the directory that contains your emulator and PRG file.
  3. Enter x16emu -prg YourFileName.prg -run

The program your PRG file contains will then open in the Commander X16 emulator.

You can also load and run a PRG file from within the Commander X16 emulator, using the LOAD and RUN commands.
