Sounds like you are missing MS-Windows! The VFP300.esl only provides Visual
FoxPro runtime -- you still must have Windows itself, or a Windows runtime...

1. Unable to run Paradox 4.0 for DOS from DOS

I'm running Paradox 4.0 for DOS.

If I run this program from Windows the program runs as expected.

However if I try to run this program from DOS, I get the folowing
error message and the program returns me to the DOS prompt.

The error message read:

"Unexpected condiction:  GP 0000 AT PARADOX:28:12d7 -- Leaving Paradox"

This is only happening on one of about 150 computers that I work with.

Would anyone have an idea as to what is happening.
