    Question Unanswered: foxbase+ on windows XP

    I have been supporting a friend/client for 15+ years on a 8 user network, the software (100 programs AR,OE,INV) is written in foxbase+. It is running on Novell network with windows 98se machines.

    We/I am now planning on using an Debian Linux server running Samba. We would like to use some new XP machines, but! THe screen is only 25 lines.

    I start foxbase up with a batch file and have tried to configure the command prompt to use the entire screen, 49 lines; but foxbase will only allow me to use 25.

    Any help would be kind!

    Wink Foxbase + screen size

    Ciro Lriarte:
    Yes I did find the answer. Foxbase was written with a max screen size of 25 lines. I was trying to go to 43 lines. But windows xp and foxbase do not agree. Someware in the foxbase code is a max lines number of 25. If you tell xp foxbase has 43 lines it works fine but on 1/2 a screen. To use the old software you must tell windows that foxbase has 25 lines to get a full screen.
