Windows 7 Visual FoxPro ODBC Driver

Microsoft have made it virtually impossible to find out how to get this driver for Windows 7.

If you are getting the error “You must first install the current version of the Visual FoxPro ODBC Driver”, you need to download this driver and install it.

Tthe file you are after is called VFPODBC.msi and can be downloaded directly from Microsoft at the time of writing. No doubt they will move that link to ensure no one can find it again.

To use it on a 64 bit windows system, you need to run the 32  bit version of ODBC: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe

[update 2016-07-20]

or you could download it from here. I’ve tested and it seems to install fine in Windows 10, but I haven’t tested if it works as I don’t use FoxPro any more.
