SYWARE News: Apple Policy Changes Preclude Visual CE on the iPhone
Apple is currently battling with Adobe Flash, and it appears that
the future of Visual CE on the iPhone may end up as collateral
damage. Apple recently updated the terms of its iPhone developer
agreement to mandate that all applications must be written to
run directly on the iPhone platform in its efforts to preclude
Adobe Flash applications from running on the iPhone. According to
Section 3.3.1 of the iPhone Developer Program License Agreement,
"Applications that link to Documented APIs through an intermediary
translation or compatibility layer or tool are prohibited." This
seems to imply that Visual CE forms (which run on the
Visual CE Runtime System) would be disallowed. Even if they were
not, it is clear that Apple has no qualms about unilaterly
dictating what is or is not allowed on the iPhone and changing
these standards at will. Read more about this here:

Technical Tip from "Dr. DeeBee": Dealing with "Macro not found" errors
When you remove a macro from your form, Visual CE does not remove the references to that macro in the control events, form events, custom menu commands, nor the RUN MACRO macro steps. If you then try to run that form, you will see a "Macro not found" error. Here's how to find and remove these macro references.
