Developer: N/A
File type: FoxPro Variable File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .mem. Files with the file extension .mem can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .mem files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .mem file?

MEM files are known as FoxPro Variable Files because they are used by the Foxpro software to store variables and arrays. They are categorized as backup files and restoring these files may require the RESTORE FROM command since these files can be saved and restored at the same time. These files can make changes but also has the ability to restore back the files without the changes made which is why they can be used for backup purposes. This is because MEM files are memory variable and array storage mostly used for projects created through FoxPro. MEM files are files containing the codes that allow the saving, deleting, restoring of variables and arrays. Microsoft Visual Foxpro is the main application that uses MEM files and it is also the main application used to open these files. This application provides users with the necessary tools for the creation and management of a high performance and 32-bit components and applications of databases.

how to open a .mem file?

Launch a .mem file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .mem file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .mem files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .mem file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .mem file will open the correct application.

FoxPro, a procedural programming language and database management system created by Fox Software, has been widely used even before it was turned over to Visual FoxPro. It still enjoys a strong support from its community of programmers and users up to this day. FoxPro versions 2.0, 2.5 and 2.6 are compatible with Mac, DOS and Windows 3.1 to XP. Version 2.6 is compatible also with Linux and Free BSD, SCO Unix and Windows 2000. FoxPro 2 used Rushmore, an optimizing engine that used indices to look for matching expressions, to accelerate data updating and data retrieval. FoxPro 2 was built originally on Watcom C++ that has its own extensor making it the most up-to-date technology at that time. It could access expanded and extended memory making it able to utilize almost all available RAM [DOS]. If HIMEM.SYS is not loaded, FoxPro enabled a mechanism of using interrupts when extended memory driver is absent. File formats associated with FoxPro: ACT [FoxPro Documenting Wizard Action Diagram], APP [FoxPro Generated Application], DBC [FoxPro Database], DBF [Database File], DBF [FoxPro Table], DBG [FoxPro Debugger Configuration], DBT [Database Text File], DCT [FoxPro Database Memo], DCX[FoxPro Database Index], ERR [FoxPro Compilation Error], FKY [FoxPro Macro], FLL [FoxPro Dynamic Link Library], FMT [Foxpro Format File], FPT [FoxPro Table Memo], FRT [FoxPro Report Memo], FRX [FoxPro Report], FXP [FoxPro Compiled Program], LBT [FoxPro Labeled Memo], LBX [FoxPro Label File], LST [FoxPro Documenting Wizard List], MEM [FoxPro Variable File], MNX [FoxPro Menu], MPR [FoxPro Generated Menu Program], MPX [FoxPro Compiled Menu Program], NDX [dBASE Index File], PJX [FoxPro Project], PJT [FoxPro Project Memo], QPR [FoxPro Generated Query Program], QPX [FoxPro Compiled Query Program], VUE [FoxPro 2.x View Settings], WIN [FoxPro Window Settings], TBK [FoxPro Memo Backup], SPR [FoxPro Generated Screen File], SCT [FoxPro Form Memo] and SCX [FoxPro Form].

dataBased Intelligence dBase

dataBased Intelligence dBase

dataBased Intelligent dBased is a software that manages databases for minicomputers. It is a query system and a forms engine as well as a programming language. The format of dBase files is .dbf. This software was originally design for Control/Program Monitor and was later ported to the Apple II and IBM PC which is under the Disk Operating System. After several years, many companies made their own products which were Foxpro and Clipper. And these new program were much better that dBase. dBase used to make and application for window such as Web applications. An IDE with and Navigator as well as a Command Window would be the feature of dBase, with a preprocessor and an interpreter machine which is virtual. dBase intelligence is also responsible for various graphical user interface such as Form Designer, Report Designer, Menu Designer ,SQl Query designer , a Project that manages upon deploying simplified dBase application, Container, and these objects under dBase can be subclasses by simply adding new properties at the runtime.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .mem files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .mem. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
