  • Hi Juan,
     
    Visual FoxPro had never any Trial versions, mainly because it strengths and power have been well known, thus you just know you need it. No need to "try before buy" ... ;)  The only available Trial versions of Foxpro have been FoxPro/DOS 1.0 and 2.0, which have been in Trial mode by entering a special license number. In trial mode you could only use tables with less than 100 records or so. Funnily enough, the appropriate Error-message is still in the current product: Type "ERROR 1161" in the commandwindow to see.
     
    Visual Foxpro is (as any other commercial software) a copyrighted intellectual property, therefor using a pirated copy is a crime in most countries. Nonetheless you'll sometimes find torrent download-links originating mostly from China (where most of them don't care about copyright).
     
    You may find cheap used packages on Ebay. If you want to have a clean license, you should buy "MSDN Professional", which contains Visual FoxPro as well as Visual Studio.
