Foxbase 2.00 beta 2.00 beta

Category: DBMS
Year: 1987
Description:FoxBASE+ Rev 2.00 [Beta] [01-July-87] Serial Number _________ FoxBIND Utility Rev 2.00 (c) 1987 Fox Software FoxCOMP Compiler Rev 2.00 (c) 1987 Fox Software Type "help" at program prompt to view list of commands. Type "quit" at program prompt to exit FoxBASE. This truly is 2.00 [Beta}. It will report FoxBASE+ 2.00 at the program screen. The only way to confirm it is 2.00 beta, is to open it up and look near the end of the file, where it is stored in plain text. It isn't hacked to say this: FOXPLUS.EXE performs a self-check for CRC integrity each time it starts - no way to cheat that. The archive contains the main EXE, overlay, help/commands file, the linker, and the compiler - 4 files in all. See "Run under XP.txt" if used in that OS. AppleSeed '96

PART2:
EXAMPLE:
CommonProgramFiles=C:\Program Files\Common Files
gets changed to
SET CommonProgramFiles=
So, only the below needed to have correct values:
SET Path=C:\foxplus
SET SystemDrive=C:
SET SystemRoot=C:\winxp
SET HOMEDRIVE=C:
..and then it starts just fine. No need to set special memory values by right-clicking
the FOXPLUS.EXE, no need for any other tricks or hacks.
NOTE1: Every computer is likely to have a different set of environment variables active
under XP - it really depends on the software and drivers a particular system has.
NOTE2: Doing this only works for the current Command Promt window. As soon as you
close it, the settings are lost/reset.
NOTE3: This does NOT change anything permanently in XP, just the current Command
Prompt session, so no need to worry that you'll screw your system up.

Gonna attempt to post the fix for "error 2009: Not enough space for environment" The full text is in this archive.
PART1:
Run under XP
error 2009: Not enough space for environment
After much research using my assistant "Google", OK - got it to work!
It really IS environment variables being too long.
It really is NOT as Microsoft says, just right-clicking FOXPLUS.EXE in Windows
and setting memory requirements, or by just shortening the PATH= statement.
In DOS, the environment variables string can be a max of 128 bytes. Period. That's it.
I opened a Command Prompt, typed "set" AND piped it to a text file like so...
"set > env.txt"
... so I could review the entries. It was 1326 bytes! (The right pointing arrow
symbol is the "PIPE" command.)
In my installation of XP SP3, there is a sh*tload of entries. I changed them all to
[blank], still didn't work, but now, the error was that it couldn't find
C:\FOXPLUS\FOXPLUS.EXE. Houston, we have Progress!
