Newly reinstalled FoxPro 9 has serious problems Please advise
Posted on 2016-09-24
Problems with Win10 led to a reset. This process erased a number (not all) of program files, including VFP9. It installed easily with SP2. However I need to revise some things like config.fpw. But I can't edit that file. I open it with a command
MODIFY FILE "c:\program files (x86)\microsoft visual foxpro 9\config.fpw"
make the necessary changes (in particular in some CD commands), but then click the "Save" icon on the command line and I get this error message "File access is denied c:\program files (x86)\microsoft visual foxpro 9\config.fpw"
I've tried to edit this file several different ways, using say Notepad, and I get similar messages saying I don't have the right to mess with this file. Please advise. . . Thanks.
