Microsoft Visual FoxPro error has occurred



Hi there Alexander G Rogers

If the server’s workstation disk space is insufficient this problem will occur. But why only in Visual FoxPro?

Because Visual FoxPro crating temporary data on system drive

In order to solve this problem follow the steps shown below

Step 1 – go to default visual directory installation folder

Step 2 – Find for the file CONFIG.FPW

Step 3 – CONFIG.FPW if it does not include in it

Step 4 – In the end of the file add TMPFILES=<path> (path is the temporary directory)

Step 5 – Make the directory (of path) open for all the users

Step 6 – Make sure there are free space in the disk

Hope this answer helps you
