Microsoft Visual FoxPro is a programming language. If you are trying to open a Visual FoxPro document but do not have Visual FoxPro installed on the computer, you will receive an error message that says "Cannot locate the Microsoft Visual FoxPro support library." You need to have the InstallShield Express Visual FoxPro Limited Edition installed on your computer to open these files. If you have this program already, but cannot open files, you need to change settings in the program.
