After the more I read, I am thinking the more memory may not be as helpful for performance as you would think. We are running VFP 9. Any ideas/thoughts/comments on this from previous experiences. I am trying to find a rough number to at least start with on what a "normal/average/basic" amount of memory for a instance of VFP to use is. From what I have read so far 50-60 MB is normally OK and rarely do it exceed a couple hundred MB in the VFP instance.
> I know it is going to be a trial and error approach but was wanting something to use as a general rule of thumb or starting point to gauge. Any additional thoughts would be great...thanks
