Installing Visual Foxpro on Windows 10 64bit

After replacing my computer, I needed to reinstall Visual Foxpro. I had the install disc contents, but whatever executable I started with: it kept on crashing. A Google search brought silly advice, but fortunately there was a gem: an article on wOOdy’s Blog. This explained what the right procedure is and what file to start with (VFPSTART.HTA). It stil would not work. Not from a folder, and not from a mapped network disc. I found the free AnyBurn software that gave me the opportunity to create an ISO file from my install folder. Now it was as easy as double clicking the ISO file to have Windows mount the CD image and assign it a drive letter. Now everything worked like a charm. Then we have to apply both service packs, and perhaps some useful suggestions wOOdy made.
