Run FoxPro 2.6 in XP

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I would like to run a FoxPro 2.6 app for DOS on XP machine. The app's configured the same I had it on my Win2000 machine. Setting up config.nt and autoexec.nt files, .pif file properties, assigning the app run in win98 environment, neither did the trick. To me, it's a valuable app and I'd hate to leave it with a switch to XP. I've browsed the web but there's not much stuff on the subject have I found.

I would really appreciate if somebody had a clue to it.

I know absolutely nothing about this app but it sounds like a DOS app, is that right? If so DOSBOX may be an option. I have used it to play old DOS games that won't run in XP. I haven't used it for ages so I can't really remember much about it, have a google for it.

Another option may be to run a virtual Win2K machine from within XP using VMware, VirtualBox or VirtualPC. I know that in Linux you can run programs inside VirtualBox and have them appear as if they are running natively, I'm sure if you can do that in Windows too but may be a neat solution if you can.

It is a DOS app, and I'll check DOSBOX. Hopefully, it would help. Thanks!
