  • Hi JDStephen,

    as VFP ended more than 10 years ago, any modern hardware you can buy is many times more than sufficient to run with the fox. The only thing you have to take care of is, that it is coming with Windows. Usually new PCs have a win64bit preinstalled. This is ok, however, you need 8GB RAM to make it work at an acceptable speed. This isn't VFP specific but a general rule for working with windows 64bit. (=8GB to make it work, 16GB to make it fun). Having a 500GB SSD is also nice to make your PC fast, but in that case you sometimes might think, your code doesn't work because VFP will be way tooooo fast ;)

    Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
    Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible,
    you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it. 010101100100011001010000011110000101001001101111011000110110101101110011
