FIX: BROWSE Command Causes "Abnormal Termination" Error
2.50 MS-DOS kbprg kbfixlist kbbuglist kberrmsg
The information in this article applies to:
Running the Extended (32-bit) version of FoxPro for MS-DOS (FOXPROX.EXE) and issuing a BROWSE command when the first field is a calculated field causes an "Abnormal Termination" error on 486 machines and hangs 386 machines. This problem occurs in the Extended version only at the MS-DOS prompt, but doesn't occur at the MS-DOS prompt when it is accessed through Windows.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in FoxPro 2.5 for MS-DOS. This problem was corrected in FoxPro 2.5a for MS-DOS.
Steps to Reproduce Problem
1. In the Command window, type the following commands:
MODIFY COMMAND Test USE C:\Foxpro25\Tutorial\Customer.dbf BROWSE VALID:f .t. FIELDS dummy=1+2,cno DO test
2. Press the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW key. The error will occur. Additional reference words: FoxDos 2.50 CRASH HANGS forced validation valid errmsg err msg buglist2.50 fixlist2.50a KBCategory: kbprg kbfixlist kbbuglist kberrmsg KBSubcategory: Solution Type : kbfix
