Make a backup copy of your code.

open start.prg in the editor, type something, delete the same text, save
the file. In the Command Window:

compile start.prg

This will ensure it's got a .pro file.

How are you deploying the runtime? You really need to provide more
details. I ran into an issue a little while ago, reported a bug and then
since Kathy couldn't reproduce the error, uninstalled and reinstalled my
application and it worked perfectly. no clue what didn't happen, but I
didn't install dBASE Plus 12 on my test computer.
