How To Install Foxpro 2.6 in Windows XP

How To Install Foxpro 2.6 in Windows XP – I used FoxPro 2.6 for Windows to construct a number of databases and FoxPro applications on my Win98 machine in the past.

I now have a machine with Windows XP Home Edition installed. When I tried to install FoxPro 2.6 for Windows on my XP PC (from floppies), I double-clicked on the first floppy in Windows Explorer and then ran Setup.exe from Start/Run/Setup.exe.

There was a brief apparition of an hourglass on the screen in both cases, followed by nothing. When I looked at the Windows Task Manager, I couldn’t see any application or process that had anything to do with FoxPro or its installation.

Am I doomed in this endeavor?
