  • I would recommend to stay with FoxPro. The application will run for another 10 years then you'll find this solution as the most effective one.

  • Why on earth do you want to go to .NET 2.0? There have been three versions since it's release.

    But, you can try http://www.vfpconversion.com/

  • Pavel,

    That's very poor advice. You have no idea what the application is, the target market, functionality, etc.  There are many variables that come into play. Staying the VFP *MIGHT* be a good idea, but to simply make a blanket statement to just stick with VFP is unprofessional.

  • @Craig Berntson

    Probably is more professional to be stuck with m$, who discontinued Vfp.

  • I guess you can't predict the future of Solid State Drives:

  • 1. You address a very old thread

    2. The download is an installer, it'll install a demo version only, why should it work from a pen drive? Even after installing it'll depend on VFP runtime or .NET framework, again, why should it work from a pen drive? I haven't even looked, if the converter itself is VFP or .NET exe.

    3. The demo is only converting form controls, it does no visual conversion, you get VB.NET or C# code generating controls and their events will have VFP code as comment, there is no functional conversion. As the demo version it limits conversion to forms with 10 controls or less.

    Bye, Olaf.
