  • Hi,

    could you be a bit more specific on when this error occurs?

    Usually this only happens, when a compiled app is installed without corresponding runtimes.

    It might also be helpful to know, which windows version you are using and where exactly you installed VFP.

  • My error is "cannot locate the microsoft visual foxpro support library"

    This error appears when you are executing VFP application compiled into EXE. It should not appear on computer where VFP IDE is installed. Are you sure your EXE was created in VFP 9?

    You may also install VFP run-time from here: http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/FoxPro/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=125


    Necessary run-time files are listed here: http://fox.wikis.com/wc.dll?Wiki~VFP9RuntimeFiles

  • Also, is it possible you have other versions of the VFP applications installed? If you had different version of VFP libraries installed, you may get conflicts, although the error will be different.

  • First Create An .EXE File Of Your Software.

    Than Copy The Following 3 Files Into Your Software Folder Where Your .EXE File Exists.

    File Names Are :

    1.    msvcr71.dll

    2.    vfp9r.dll

    3.    VFP9RENU.DLL

    These 3 Files Are Visual Foxpro 9.00's Library Supporting Files And You Will Find These Files Inside The VFP9 Folder.

    I Am Sure That This Will Definetely Solve Your Problem.
