When you try to open a file using the File Open dialog box, the error"File Not Found" or "File Does Not Exist" may occur.
This problem occurs when the FoxUSER file is not present in the SystemFolder or when there is an INIT or Extension conflict.

Other possible causes include having multiple FoxUSER files on thesystem, a corrupted FoxUSER file, or a database file with an extensionother than .DBF.
To determine if there is an INIT or Extension conflict, disable allExtensions or INITs, as follows:

  • Under System 7.0, press the SHIFT key while restarting the machine to disable all Extensions. Once the logo "Welcome to Macintosh/Extensions Off" appears, release the SHIFT key.
  • Under System 6.0x, drag each INIT out of the System Folder and restart the Macintosh.
NOTE: You may not be able to remove all the Extensions or INITs; somemay be needed to run the Macintosh. Remove as many INITs or Extensionsas possible.
