When you install Visual FoxPro 3.0b on a system that currently has a copyof Visual FoxPro 3.0 installed, do not install Visual FoxPro 3.0b on top ofthe existing Visual FoxPro 3.0 installation. Remove Visual FoxPro 3.0 firstbefore installing Visual FoxPro 3.0b.
Steps to Upgrade from Visual FoxPro 3.0 to Visual FoxPro 3.0b
Run Visual FoxPro 3.0 Setup, and choose the Remove All option. To run Visual FoxPro 3.0 setup, click the Visual FoxPro setup icon in the Visual FoxPro program group, or run setup from the Visual FoxPro CD-ROM or from disk one of the Visual FoxPro setup disks.
If Visual FoxPro 3.0 was the professional edition, delete the \Vfp\Distrib subdirectory.
If Visual FoxPro 3.0 was the professional edition, delete all occurrences of the following files:
Dkcontrl.dbf Dkcontrl.cdx Wzsetup.ini
Now, you can safely run Visual FoxPro 3.0b setup. Visual FoxPro 3.0b can beinstalled in the same directory as Visual FoxPro 3.0 or in a new directory.
Note for Professional Edition Users
The name of the extended support library file (Vfp300.esl) is the same forboth Visual FoxPro 3.0 and Visual FoxPro 3.0b. To avoid any possibleconfusion, there should be only one version of the ESL file located on yoursystem, and it should be the Visual FoxPro 3.0b version. All of the .exefiles that were built in Visual FoxPro 3.0 should be rebuilt in VisualFoxPro 3.0b before you run them.
