ID: Q107419

2.50a | 2.50a MS-DOS | WINDOWS kbprg kbfixlist kbbuglist

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for MS-DOS, version 2.5a
  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, version 2.5a


The upper and lower mapping for the Russian code page is not handled properly.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in FoxPro 2.5a for MS-DOS and FoxPro 2.5a for Windows. This problem was corrected in FoxPro 2.5b for MS-DOS and FoxPro 2.5b for Windows.


In addition to the correction to the mapping for the Russian code page, Microsoft FoxPro version 2.5b for MS-DOS and Windows now also supports the Icelandic and Greek code pages. Additional supported code pages are listed in the FoxPro README.TXT file.


For information about how to use alternate code pages, query on the following words here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
