    Question Unanswered: Foxplus/dbase in Windows XP

    I'm trying to run an old Foxplus version in an XP enviroment but keep getting the message about insufficient space to run it. However I configure the enviroment it does not chanbge this.

    Anyone got an answer or am I doomed to used it on a Windows 98 machine forever?

    how old are your apps? AFAIK Windows XP doesn't support 16Bit Apps any more

    Windows XP will still run 16 bit apps. After all, it's just a prettier version of NT 2000.
    A couple thing to try though, set the desktop iceon or shortcut to Win95 compatibility.

    Change your config.nt and add these lines:
    files=95
    buffers=15

    Try changing this setting in your config.fp file:
    MEMLIMIT = 60,2048,8192
    -or-
    MEMLIMIT = 60,2048,4098

    Some people use TameDOS:

    Also, make sure you have sufficient rights. Fox may be trying to create tempfiles in an area of the hard drive which you don't have access to.
