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)

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.

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:


This seemed to clear up all my problems.
