Since VFP 9.0 isn't part of VS 2005 (or any other version of Visual Studio) and the VFP 9.0 SP1 isn't part of the VS SP1, I doubt if this works.

Historically MS hasn't provided this capability for VFP, and with SP2 for VFP 9.0 coming, I doubt if they'll provide one right now.

Sure: copy the VFP CD to a writeable drive, use WinZip to extract the MSP file from the SP1 installation, then run this command (allowing for different file paths) to update the installation directory:

msiexec /a c:\vfoxpro9.0\vs_setup.msi /p c:\temp\VFP9.0sp1-KB909149-X86-Enu.msp

I just tested an install and it seemed to work just fine. (I had to type in the product key for VFP9 though)
