I'm sure this is a really simple problem to resolve, but I'm having trouble installing FPW26. The company I now work for, used to develop in Foxpro, we're now .NET based. In the past I've had to deal with customer issues for applications developed on VFP6-9 and have had no issues installing those development platforms.
We've recently had a request from a customer who are using an application built on foxpro2.6 to update some of their reports. They have no intention of upgrading so not an option.
I've managed to find a FPW26 folder on one of the retired servers and am sure that this is the FP2.6 windows development platform installation folder but I can't figure out the install steps. There's a DKSETUP Folder in which contains a SETUP.exe but when I run this it complains about not finding FOXPRONT.FO_ in DISK1. Ive renamed DKSETUP to DISK1 and now the setup.exe runs and it creates a directory which contains an INSTALL.EXE file.
I copy this install file to the FPW26 folder as it complains about not finding library files. When I run the install.exe, it launches the development tool (or what I think is the dev tool) but there is an error message saying "file not found" and when i click anywhere on the the window it crashes.
I ran the patch 26 exe in case it was the overflow issue that was causing the problem but it made no difference.
I am trying to install this on an XP machine.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
