Not in quite a while..  It worked a few years ago, but FPW26 is a 16-bit
app, and support for 16bit isn't really there.

If you have Windows screens you need to use, try using VFP3/5 -
otherwise if you have screens that also work in FPD, you can use the
Solaris runtime to run FPD apps 'natively' on Linux:
