SYMPTOMS

The following error message occurs when you attempt to run a setup routine that was created using the FoxPro SetupWizard. This message will appear after the details have been entered on the first setup screen.

Error: INF file contains a badly formed file description line - too few fields (commas)

Also, Visual FoxPro produces the following error:

Object ID 0: Invalid ObjID field: 240.00....

CAUSE

This error occurs because the SetupWizard has written decimal places to a field in the .INF file.

RESOLUTION

To eliminate this error, issue the following command before running the SetupWizard:

SET FIXED OFF


The .INF files will now be correctly written.

STATUS

This behavior is by design.
