We have an application that we use on a daily basis that runs on FoxPro 2.5; We own it but the developer is long gone..
We had to replace the XP Pro PC it was running on. We were advised the XP is going away, but Windows 7 Pro (64 bit) with Virtual PC / XP mode would work fine. It does kind of...
The batch file is set to run FOXR.EXE \prg\menu -t
When we execute the program we just get a momentary black screen and then it goes back to the desktop. No error messages.
When we modify the batch file to run with FOXPROL or FOXPROX, it does run, but when the program starts we get the error message - Numeric overflow <data was lost>. We tell it to ignore and it "appears" to work.
Not sure if these 2 issues are related or not, but we would like to
A) get program to run as designed using FOXR. EXE
B) no error messages.
