FoxPro Files That Can Be Deleted to Save Disk Space

ID: Q101881

2.00 2.50 2.50a | 2.50 2.50a

MS-DOS          | WINDOWS

kbref The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for MS-DOS, versions 2.0, 2.5, and 2.5a
  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, versions 2.5 and 2.5a

Not all files placed on the hard disk during installation of FoxPro are absolutely required for operation of the product. FoxPro 2.0 and 2.5 for MS-DOS can be started with only two files: FOXPRO.EXE and FOXPRO.OVL. For the extended (32 bit) version, these two files can be replaced by only one, FOXPROX.EXE.

The minimum files needed to run FoxPro, use the menu and screen generators, and set printer drivers are listed below.

NOTE: Upon startup, FoxPro will create FOXUSER.DBF and FOXUSER.FPT files, and upon screen or menu generation, it will create the appropriate .FXP files.
