BUG: GP Fault When Running FoxDoc on Project with .DBF Only

ID: Q101050

2.50 2.50a 2.50b 2.60 WINDOWS kbprg kbbuglist

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, versions 2.5, 2.5a, 2.5b, 2.6


Running FoxDoc on a project containing only database files causes a general protection (GP) fault.


To avoid the GP fault, add a single file of type .PRG, .SPR/.SPX, .MPR/.MNX, or .QPR to the project.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in FoxPro versions 2.5, 2.5a, 2.5b, and 2.6 for Windows. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.


Steps to Reproduce Problem

1. Create project named TEST.

2. Add a file of type .DBF to this project.

3. Save the project.

4. Run FoxDoc on the project. Specify TEST.PJX as the main file and

   TEST.PJX's directory as the program, data, and output directories.

5. Choose the Generate button on the FoxDoc main screen.

   A Windows-based application Error dialog box with Cancel and Ignore
   options will appear. Choose Cancel.

A Windows error box will appear, with the following message:

   Application Error: FOXPROW caused a General Protection Fault in
   module FOXDOC.FLL at xxxx:yyyy

Closing FoxPro after the GP fault does not appear to release all the used memory back to Windows, as evidenced by the information in the About Program Manager dialog box. NOTE: In Visual FoxPro for Windows, FoxDoc has been replaced by the Documentation Wizard, which does not have this problem.
