I have a computer running Windows 7 which uses FoxPro libraries for a particular program. Everything works fine using one login. But, if I login as a different user, I get the error: "Cannot locate the microsoft visual foxpro support library". Any suggestions would be helpful.

It seems the second user has no access rights to these support library files. You have to find their location and update access rights.

Following link can say what support files are necessary depending on your Visual FoxPro version: http://fox.wikis.com/wc.dll?Wiki~VFPRuntimeFiles~VFP

The best place for support libraries is the same folder where the EXE is located.

The reason for "one login works fine, other logins doesn't" is the UAC (User Access Control) in Win7 or Win Vista. If
a) UAC is enabled and
b) the Install-Directory is "c:\Program files" and
c) the user who installed the program has no admin-rights
the installed files became virtualized _per user_
=> thats the reason the program works for one user (who installed the program) but doesn't work for other users. workaround is: first disable uac and then install the program (not recommended)
solution:
a) install the program as administrator or
b) keyword "manifest"

Both answers should help to solve the problem. My recommendation: Instead of deletion split points between https:#a35200684 and https:#a35220484
