VFP ODBC Drivers - Argh

Looking for VFP ODBC Drivers can be a pain. I know they are only VFP 6 (talk about old) compatible but when you need to connect to VFP tables via ODBC, you need to find them, which can turn into an exercise in frustration. The Microsoft site itself says they aren't available and in fact, the only one you can find is included in an MSM (Merge Module) that needs a setup to distribute them.

So once I found the MSM file for it, I created a setup for this (with some install notes for accessing it) which is available here.

Microsoft may not care too much about VFP Developers any more, but there are enough of us out there to do so.

Hi Andrew,

you just need to install the well-known VFP runtime installers from
archive.msdn.microsoft.com/FoxPro
and they will install all necessary components for FoxPro, which includes MSXML, ODBC- as well as the OLEDB- drivers for VFP.
