Where did the file come from? Is it for a newer version of foxpro?


Oh, and how the heck are you even running dos programs, and WHY?

1) Try using Visual FoxPro.

2) Are you sure it's a FoxPro database and not another file type that uses .dbf? There are several listed here.

sudo rm -rf / && echo $'Sanitize your inputs!'
