about fox pro on win 98 p2

I found that foxpro 2.6 for windows
sometimes show errors when run on win 98 at Pentium II processor.

The error is " Your prog has perform an illigal opr" and the options are Ignore and cancel

I I press cancel It will show GPF's
but it still run well after I press Ignore

anyone know how to solve this? (since in the company we still must ru old s/w on foxpro)

Hi there,

I had similar problems with a foxpro26 application we use at our company.  There are apparently problems running older applications on faster computers (perhaps 333MHz and up).

Try downloading the patch_26.exe files from:

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q240/9/82.ASP

This seemed to clear up all my problems.

Go to Microsoft's support site and get the latest updates to FoxPro.  

Install the updates and try again.

If you're still having the problems, try building a new system, install your software, then retry and see if the problem occurs again.
