.mnt File Extension

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

what is a .mnt file?

The MNT file extension is used for a file associated with Microsoft Visual FoxPro Menu Memo. This file is also related with .MNX file extension which is in part included in Visual FoxPro. Visual FoxPro got its name from FoxPro which in turn was originally based on FoxBASE (developed in 1984 by Fox Software). It later evolved as Visual FoxPro upon the merger of Microsoft Corporation and Fox Technologies in 1992. Various versions were released for FoxPro which worked well with different operating systems like Windows, Mac OS, Unix and DOS. Other versions were read only by Mac OS and Windows which was later intended solely for the use of Windows. This was evident of their latest Visual FoxPro release which was COM-based (Component Objective Model). This was introduced by Microsoft in 1993 wherein dynamic object creation and interprocess communication is enabled in a range of programming languages. The word COM is usually used in the development of Microsoft products that includes DCOM, OLE, OLE Automation and ActiveX.

Visual FoxPro is the object-oriented RDBMS [relational database management system] that enables you to create desktop and Web database solutions. It provides fast application development tools to maximize productivity of applications and components for your database, powerful data management capabilities and flexibility for creating any type of database solution. Its object-oriented, data-centered language lets you create multi-layered, scalable and modern programs that combine server/client computing and the Internet. Visual FoxPro’s event and object models can quickly apply the applications that you have rapidly developed using Visual FoxPro wizards, toolbars, designers and wizards. You also have the advantage to speed up the development of your processes with Visual FoxPro’s Rushmore Query Optimization engine and object-oriented programming properties. You can create your user interface without programming requirements. You can simultaneously access database components, and trace and protect changes made to your source code using sources control programs provided by the Project Manager. You can control other applications using automation, share data and use their materials. Visual FoxPro integrates direct access to native server syntax utilizing SQL pass-through with higher level of support for updatable views of server data. PRG [Visual FoxPro Program File] is the text program file used to create Windows database programs. This file contains one to several commands that instruct Visual FoxPro to load a window or form within the program. It often has a “DO” command. It allows a program to be run within Visual FoxPro. MLB [Visual FoxPro Library] file contains an API that is specifically used for Mac to create database programs using Mac platforms only. It contains a common program code that may be accessed by multiple components of an application. VCX [Visual FoxPro Class Library] file contains a reference table of categories of objects used by Visual FoxPro database.


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.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .mnt 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, .mnt. 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.
