Ruth,
Somewhere on this forum / message board there is a link to a patch which modifies a file so that it works under XP. Sorry I thought it was attrib. but its patch. I got it from a link from this forum

This is the Readme file for Patch2x, version 1.0.

Patch2x updates international FoxPro for Windows version development environment and runtime library files to eliminate the "Divide by Zero or Overflow Error" message upon startup. This error is encountered when starting FoxPro for Windows or a runtime FoxPro for Windows application on a "fast machine", i.e. a computer which has a processor with a clock speed higher than 300 MHz or so.

The patch program is distributed in the compressed executable IPatchFP.EXE.

Contents:

File Description
=========== ===========
PATCH2x.EXE Patch Program
README.TXT This Readme file


Instructions:

Situation 1 - Applying Patch When Using FoxPro For Windows Development Environment

1. Place a copy of PATCH2x.EXE in your FoxPro for Windows directory. This directory will be C:\FPW26 if you installed FoxPro 2.6 into the default location.
2. Start a Command Prompt (Windows NT) or MS-DOS Prompt (Windows 9x). The program item to do this can be found under the Windows Start menu, under the Programs group.
3. Issue the following commands at the command prompt. Note that the directory after the CD command will need to be your FPW directory, where you copied PATCH2x.EXE in step 1. Copies are made of each of the files will be made with the .OLD extensions. The commands involving FOXW2600.ESL are applicable only to the Professional Edition of FoxPro For Windows.

CD C:\FPW26
COPY FOXPROW.EXE FOXPROW.OLD
COPY FOXW2600.ESL FOXW2600.OLD
PATCH2x FOXPROW.EXE
PATCH2x FOXW2600.ESL

Situation 2 - Applying Patch When Using FoxPro For Windows 2.6a Runtime Application

1. Place a copy of PATCH2x.EXE in the directory containing the FoxPro for Windows runtime library file. For FoxPro 2.6, this file is called FOXW2600.ESL.
2. Start a Command Prompt (Windows NT) or MS-DOS Prompt (Windows 9x). The program item to do this can be found under the Windows Start menu, under the Programs group.
3. Issue the following commands at the command prompt. Note that the directory after the CD command will need to be the directory where you copied PATCH2x.EXE in step 1.

CD <drive and directory with FOXW2600.ESL file>
COPY FOXW2600.ESL FOXW2600.OLD
PATCH2x FOXW2600.ESL


Notes:

1. FOXPROW.EXE is the development environment executable. It is installed with FoxPro for Windows, Standard and Professional editions. FOXW2600.ESL is the runtime library for FoxPro for Windows 2.6 or 2.6a. It is installed with FoxPro for Windows, Distribution Kit, which is included with the Professional Edition.

2. Patch2x is a 32-bit Windows command line executable. It requires Windows 9x or Windows NT. It will not work under Windows 3.x.

3. If the filename passed to Patch2x is incorrectly spelled or does not include the file extension, Patch2x will return the message:
"Could not find the target file '<Path/file passed to Patch2x>'."

4. If you attempt to patch a file that has already been patched, Patch26 will return the message:
"I cannot find anything to patch.
The file may already be patched, or it might not be a patchable file."
