PRB: "Not Running on a 386 DPMI Implementation" in Windows NT

ID: Q103835

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, versions 2.5 and 2.5a


An attempt to run FoxPro for Windows under the Microsoft Windows NT operating system fails with the error "Not running on a 386 DPMI implementation."


The Windows NT operating system allows Windows 3.x-based applications to run in 386 enhanced mode on an x86-based platform, and in standard mode on non-x86-based platforms. Because FoxPro for Windows requires the 386 enhanced mode of Windows, it cannot be run on a non-x86 platform under Windows NT.


In order to run FoxPro for Windows under the Windows NT operating system, you must be using an x86-based computer.
