Cannot locate the Microsoft Visual Foxpro support library.

    Question

  • My wife bought a Provider Ware Inc software for her home daycare.  Unfortunately, the hard drive on her lap top generated errors.  Backed up the hard drive but received the error when trying to open the application.  See title.  However, I was not able to find the CD to re-install program.  Not sure what *dll files are missing.  Any suggestions?

  • Presuming its a fairly recent version of VFP, you are looking for two DLLs and you can find these via the web once you know the version involved. 

    If you cannot find the version involved, search the web for VFP Runtime DLLs - there should be two files - put them in the same folder as the EXE that runs the app, and then run the EXE.

    Even if you test say, version 7,8 and then 9 you wont hurt anything by running the wrong version - you will just get a wild and whacky error and thus know, ooops wrong version.

    To be a bit clearer here - you are looking for the "runtime DLLs" - and again, these can be had off the web - just google them.
