Publish the database on a Terminal Server or Citrix MetaFrame server.

You need to have the VFP runtime files on each machine that is to run the app. Try this link to get an exe to install them: http://www.absoft-my.com/absoftware/req_files.php.
You can just copy these runtime files to the target computer's system32 subdirectory of the operating system directory:

VFP6RENU.DLL
VFP6R.DLL
VFP6RUN.EXE
VFP6T.DLL - needed to run multi-threaded
VFPODBC.DLL - for remote data access

You did not list what your problems were, hope this helps.

1. Put the database files on a network file server.
2. From each client, map a drive letter to that
shared folder.
3. The application (you have to put it in the code )should use the database files
from this mapped network drive path.
4. Copy the executable foxpro file to a folder on each client.
5. Run the program from the client, should work fine.
