Visual FoxPro Environment Requirements
Web Connection 7.x (and 6.x) supports only Visual FoxPro 9.0 to run.
Web Connection 5.x supports FoxPro 8 and Web Connection 4.x supports FoxPro 7 and 6.
All West Wind Tools run based on the assumption that
SET EXACT OFF is set in the FoxPro environment.
Due to various legacy performance concerns which otherwise would be required to check exact values and existing
SET EXACT is assumed to be
OFF. If you happen to run your code with
SET EXACT ON you may have to explicitly switch your
SET EXACT settings before calling functions in this library.
We realize this is not optimal and due to some base framework legacy concerns. We've been slowly removing instances where
SET EXACT has an impact especially in library code. But there are a still a number of places - especially inside the core Web processing engine - where
SET EXACT is used extensively and we recommend that you run Web Connection applications with
SET EXACT OFF and set to
ON on an as needed basis.
