Foxpro 2.6 Conversion

By lmcdonald ·
Our Network Administrator cannot get my Foxpro 2.6 to work on my XP. He has tried the upgrades, patches, etc and nothing is working. If I purchase the newest version of Foxpro, will all my programs and apps that were written in 2.6 work?

You don't say what the problem is. Did you increase your processor speed as well as moving to XP?

Foxpro 2.x DOS runs in XP

by davidjmp In reply to

To run in XP simply change the files = 40 in \windows\system32\config.nt to
files = 200 . To increase printing speed change all lpt_timeout=15 to 1 in the registry. Sorry this reply is late but solution is well tested and works 100%. You can even use "net use" to map USB ports to LPT ports. All seemed good in Vista until I tried to print to USB. "net use" does not help redirect USB printers to LPT ports. There may be a solution out there but I have not found one yet.
