This is really historical, back when FoxPro was independent. I just had a full system crash, and now want to get my one database with FoxPro back up. It will not run. Calls for a dll which is in fact on the system, but indicates that reinstalling the .exe file is desired. But ...... That is years ago, and any source material is on 5 1/4 inch diskettes if I still have them [generally these have long ago been discarded]. Any ideas welcome.

If you have back-up, you can just copy the necessary files onto your recovered (replaced ) drive. Older versions of Fox don't need to run through an installation process.

By "back up" he means "back up and running." :-)

That makes sense, but the required DLL is on the system, presumably reloaded by the new installation. But FoxPro does not know where it is, and clearly I do not know where it ought to be.

What version of Windows
What version of Foxpro
What dll is it asking for

You haven't given any of this information.

I personally have experience with Fox products going back to Foxbase in the early 1980's. There have been a LOT of releases since then. What on that continuum do you consider historical ;-)
