HowTo / Notes

Old article for reference


  • Visual Foxpro needs the windows version to be set through winecfg to nt40 or nt351 or Windows 98
Summary of Suggestions from past test results

What works
Applications flow + printing + VFP over VNC + others
Standard application usage plus printing minus ActiveX
Application flow plus printing and othersStandard application flow

Normal application flow, printing, wine over vnc, etc.

What does not
Objects that are suppose to be invisible become visible due to faulty repaint.

Additional Comments
Watch out for dependency requirement
Remember to install msttcorefonts package.
Remember to install MS fonts.

What was not tested
ActiveX, Samba, data source, etc.

Note important differences between running VFP on Windows and wine:

1. File name in linux is different when capitalized so take a note when developing components (forms, reports, database, etc). What supposedly a replacement operation (file x.scx replacing x.scx) can probably fail (because file x.scx is different than file x.SCX).

2. Default printer to use in a VFP can't be set. The Default printer always follow linux default printer.

3. Custom paper size setting is erratically off a couple of mm althought that's probably due to problem in linux cups printing. It's a big problem in form feed printing.

4. Position of objects in actual report printing can be far from what seen in preview. WYSINWYG.

5. Application graphic refresh is not perfect and sometimes borderline ugly, depending on wine version. Many refresh problems are related to container object.

6. Some VFP crashes may lead to serious corruption of application projects unseen if using windows. Using source version is very recommended.

HOWTO install and run Microsoft Visual Foxpro 7 IDE and application in wine

Use a current  wine version for VFP7

This HOWTO is based on the excellent articles by Paul McNett. I'll slowly integrates that article into one comprehensive HOWTO. Please correct me if I'm wrong since some of my experiences below is based on older wine and an effort to maintain an application, not an intentional analysis of VFP in wine.
