Question : Old FoxPro application in Windows XP results in an error message “insufficient memory”
We have an old Foxpro application that was developped approx 10 years ago. I do not know which version of Foxpro it was developped in. Until now we have all run on Windows 2000. When we installed a new computer (Windows XP, all SPs, 1Gb memory) and then installed the Foxpro application and try to launch the EXE file we receive an error message that says “insuficient memory”. I saw that there already were som topics on this issue but i didn’t find a real solution. I would really appreciate a straight forward solution as to how we can solve this problem. Thank you!

procedure wait would wait n seconds and return a ”
