The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxBASE+ for Macintosh 2.01

This article was previously published under Q169254


When installing FoxBASE+ on a Macintosh from Disk 1, you may receive the following error messages:

Error -44 encountered (Disk is write protected) creating temp work
Foxtemxxx file" Ok where xxx is a random number.


You are running FoxInstall from Disk 1, but it should be copied to the FOX folder on your hard drive and run from the hard drive.


See Page Q-2 of the "Quick Start" manual to avoid this error. See text excerpt below.


This behavior is by design.


Use the following instructions for setting up your Macintosh FoxBASE+ software.

Quick Installation

  1. Create a new folder and name it FOX.
  2. Open the distribution disk and drag all the files to the FOX folder.
  3. Open the FOX folder and double-click the FoxInstall icon.
  4. Enter your serial number, then enter either the demonstration or live activation key.
  5. Start FoxBASE+/Mac by double-clicking the fox head icon.

You will also want to drag the files from Disk 2 Microsoft FoxBASE+ for Apple Macintosh into the "FOXBASE+" default folder that is created by running the FoxInstall.
