My program is written in FoxPro and running on a DOS server. It has been networked with Lantastic since the other machines are 95 & 98. I would like to get away from the dos and set it up on a newer machine but the program itself just doesnt seem to operate properly on a windows network. I can load it on a new xp machine but when we try and access from another it locks up.

How might I be able to upgrade to a better system? Mine is getting old and when it fails I will be in trouble!!!

There used to be a problem with FoxPro I first started to see happening while working for a company using old Foxpro databases about 7 years ago.  In that case it was related to the speed of the machine it was running on.  Anything over something like a 133Mhz machine and it would cause problems.  Maybe that is related.  At the time there was a patch around on the internet which slowed down the execution of the Foxpro executable to make it run slow enough to work!
