      I assume that version 6 of setup factory is also without VFP runtime support?

      At the moment I use a blank VFP6 generated setup routine that I quiet install through setup factory 5. Does anyone know of a better / easier way to do this?

      I also install DCom95 / MDAC in a similar way through the setup factory install.

        We have actually developed a VFP6.0 (sp5) runtime module but have not made it available yet. Keep an eye out for it in the next few days. If you are in a real pinch, email me at [email protected] and I will see what I can do.

            Are there any plans to create a run time for version 7 of VFP as we will be using this version for our product soon?

              Hi,

              There has been some talk of producing a Visual FoxPro 7.0 runtime, although there is no definite timeline on this. If you have any information on what is necessary to create a Visual FoxPro 7.0 runtime module please send an e-mail to: [email protected]

                If there are any VFP7.0 developers out there who want to do some testing and research on making a VFP7 runtime, here is what we know. Perhaps someone could verify it for us (we do not have any VFP developers here on staff).

                According to the MSKB article:
                http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...me_library.asp

                the necessary files for distribution are:

                vfp7r.dll
                vfp7t.dll
                vfp7renu.dll (English resources)

                And I know from further research and from a VFP developer that I talked to recently that msvcr70.dll.

                All of the above files should be installed to the Windows\System directory (use %SysDir% in SUF60). The file vfp7r.dll also supports DLLSelfRegister (see the Advanced tab of the file properties).

                So, if anyone wants to try the above out and verify the information, please do. And let us know what you find. Email [email protected] with any details.

                Thanks,

                Brett

                    Hi,

                    I've been looking into this and what I found is basically what Brett has found: VFP7RENU.DLL, vfp7t.dll, vfp7r.dll, and msvci70.dll (instead of msvcr70.dll).

                    msvci70.dll is the C++ runtime and msvcr70.dll is the C runtime, and I believe that the C++ runtime is needed.

                    After a bit mor research I belive that msvcr70.dll IS the correct DLL.
