I know that it's very old soft, but I like it. And at opening database appears message: "Visual FoxPro not a table error upon opening DBF file". As I understand it's the problem with a table. I google some foxpro dbf recovery software, but I found only trash. I'm not sure that I want to install suspicious solutions.

Try opening the .dbf file in Excel or other program that supports opening the .dbf format.

Another variant might be instrument as https://onlinefile.repair/en/dbf.html

Once opened in Excel you should be able to view the file, delete any "bad data", and resave to a new name (with the .dbf extension).

Also possible to create a new table with the structure of the old table, append records from the old to the new. May salvage records until the corruption is encountered.
