Didn't experienced such kind of problem.

Add a alias using "Stardard" driver, then in the alias's 'Default driver', select Foxpro. Select the correct path, then every thing is OK.

What do you mean?
To access databases, you must have an alias defined. You can do it in BDE Administrator/DBExplorer.

I haven't used D4 Prof., but I think the BDE setup
should be the same:

In BDE administrator, select the menu Object-New..,
then select Standard, right?
So there will be a new alias in the left tree, usually named STANDARD1, right?

Select the STANDARD1, and see the right side of the windows, there will be 4 rows, as are 'Type', 'Default driver',
'Enable BCD' and 'PATH'.              ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Select the 'Default driver', it is a ComboBox, drop it down and you can see foxpro there. If you can't that means D4 professional does not come along with FoxPro.

The Foxpro drive along with delphi can not support VFP5 tables, it can only support forpro for DOS 2.5/2.6

For ASCII driver, I don't know.
