When you are executing a program, the following error message is returned:

Too Many Memory Variables


The default setting of memory variables has been exceeded. This default is 1024 for Visual FoxPro 3.0 for Windows, and 256 for all previous versions of FoxPro.


To work around this problem, add MVCOUNT = <Expr> to the CONFIG.FPW file for FoxPro for Windows, the CONFIG.FP file for FoxPro for MS-DOS, or the CONFIG.FX file for FoxBASE+ for MS-DOS and the Macintosh. The maximum setting for MVCOUNT for 16-bit mode is 3600 (FoxPro for MS-DOS only) and the maximum for 32-bit mode is 65000.
