Installing Supplemental Programs & Optional Components

ID: Q101298

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for MS-DOS, versions 2.5 and 2.5a


During network installation, you have the option of installing the FoxPro supplemental programs and files. This step is identical to the corresponding step in the normal installation. For more information, refer to the FoxPro for MS-DOS "Installation and Configuration" manual.

After FoxPro is installed, you have the option of installing any optional components that were not specified during installation. To do so, restart FoxPro by typing "FOX" (without the quotation marks) at the MS-DOS prompt and pressing ENTER. Insert any one of the product disks into the floppy disk drive, and enter the following command in the Command window:


A prompt will appear asking you to insert the disk or disks that contain the additional files that were not previously specified to install. NOTE: If you are installing from a drive other than drive A, there will be instructions to select another source drive after the "Abort, Retry, Fail?" message.


Additional information on network installation is contained in INSTALL.TXT and additional information on optional-component installation is available in PSSKB.TXT and README.TXT. These files are on the Setup disk (Disk 1).
