FoxPro for MS-DOS vs. FoxPro for Windows Menu Differences

ID: Q103773

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, versions 2.5 and 2.5a

The menu in FoxPro for Windows has been modified for consistency with the standard Windows interface. The System menu on the FoxPro for MS-DOS menu bar has been removed and a number of specific menu items have been moved.

A brief message describing each menu item is displayed in the status bar at the bottom of the main FoxPro window.

To re-create the FoxPro version 2.0 menu bar, run the DOS.MPR file located in the GOODIES subdirectory. Running this menu program replaces the FoxPro for Windows style menu bar with the FoxPro for MS-DOS style menu bar while retaining the Text menu for multiple font support.

To automatically display the FoxPro for MS-DOS menu bar when FoxPro for Windows opens, place the following command in the CONFIG.FPW file:


NOTE: Modify the complete path specification for DOS.MPR based on your specific installation. Additional reference words: FoxWin 2.50 2.50a CONFIG.FPW DOS.MPR GOODIES SYSTEM EDIT PROGRAM TEXT OBJECT KBCategory: kbprg KBSubcategory: FxenvConfigfp
