Compatibilidad con aplicación en W7 64 Bit RRS feed

  • Question

  • En las aplicaciones desarrolladas con Visual Foxpro 5.0a, los ejecutables no encuentran las librerias de soportes (VFP500.DLL, VFP5ENU.DLL) al colocarlas en cualquiera de las carpetas a las cuales los PATH están abiertos (Ejemplos C:\WINDOW\SYSTEM32 o C:\WINDOS).

  • Sorry, this is an English Language Forum: please, post your questions in English (I'm going to answer you in English) or select a more appropriate language from the list located in the top right corner of this page.
    Moreover, the best Microsoft Forum for posting your question could be the Visual Fox Pro at the following web address

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/category/visualfoxpro

    Anyway, I presume that Visual FoxPro 5.0a is too much old to properly run in Windows 7 and it is not supported in Windows 7 according to the following query

    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/Search.aspx?l=en-us&type=Software&s=Visual%20FoxPro

    submitted to the Microsoft Windows 7 Compatibility Center web site.
    You could try to run your application in compatibility mode, but I think the best option could be virtualization: if you run Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate download and install Windows Virtual PC with XP Mode (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx), to have a 32 bit Windows XP Professional SP3 environment to run you old applications.
    You could also use a virtualization program, like Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 SP1 (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=24439) or Oracle VirtualBox (http://www.virtualbox.org), create a virtual machine and install the Windows version you need to run your program; remember that you must have valid Retail licenses for any operating system that you want to virtualize.

    Bye.
