Visual FoxPro on Windows 7

    Question

  • I have just installed Visual FoxPro 9.0 on to a Windows 7 (32 bit) box.  When I go to create a form, the ".sct" (memo) file does not automatically save with the ".scx" file (or it is corrupted immediatly upon save).  So, when I attempt to re-open the form, I get an error message stating that the .sct file is missing or invalid.  Has anyone else experienced this behavior?  I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling VFP, to no avail.

  • Check for a misconfigured virusscanner. Some of them treat the "SCT" extension as evil. Best is to exclude your data and project directories from scanning.

    Many users report the same for memo type files (sct, vct, pjt, fpt ...). They also report that the solution is configuring the antivirus software and adjust user access rights.

  • No, I am using Microsoft Security Essentials.

  • I have just changed the cofiguration of my antivirus software (Microsoft Security Essentials) and set it to exclude .sct and .scx files.  The problem persists.  I will look into user access rights, thanks.

  • Make sure you're not trying to save files to Program Files or Windows folders
