Visual Foxpro 6 on Windows 2012 R2 server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team,

    We have FoxPro 6 (32 bit) working fine on Win2008 32-bit server currently.

    We need to move this to Windows 2012 which is 64 bit server.

    Just want to understand that if FoxPro 6 (32 bit) is compatible with Windows 2012 R2?

    Based on 3 options as, 1) if Windows 2012 will have 32 bit compatibility support for Visual Foxpro 6, or 2) we need to migrate this to Visual Foxpro 9 (which is again not supported by Microsoft), or 3) we should plan to re-write this application in related technologies.

    Please suggest for this query based on known case so far related to Visual Foxpro 6 on Windows 2012. 

    This will help a lots.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Regards,

  • Hello,

    should be no problem.

    In case you use ODBC you might need to install 32bit drivers (for example "native client"), too.

    In runs fine on 2008, so oplocks should not be an issue.

    We have several "job programs" running on Server systems (2008, 2012, 2016) ,but they are written in VFP 9.

  • It should run fine in 64 bit. Might want to setup a test server first to make sure there are no glitches.
