Additional tip to EdD's tip.

what you can do, if you do not need those files, is create one textfile, in the folder where you start the exe, named config.fpw
One line will do:
resource=OFF

This way the resource files (foxuser,dbf and fpt) are never created anymore.

The config.fpw is first 'executed' by the vfp engine before anything else is done.
