Stuck with Microsoft Visual FoxPro, dBase or other legacy applications that are no longer supported?

Are you contemplating a FoxPro or dBase conversion? 32-bit applications like those are discontinued products for which Microsoft no longer offers support. Using a process-first approach, we can convert your applications to something supported and stable like .SQL or .NET and maintain, all done in-house by our group of qualified and experienced developers.

Do I have to convert Visual FoxPro now?

In 2015, Microsoft ended support for FoxPro, and they no longer offer updates or patches. Microsoft’s official position on a retired product is: “Customers are highly encouraged to move to a supported product as soon as possible.”

If all things remained constant—hardware never changed, software never changed, new operating systems were not developed, and so on—it’s possible that your present application in FoxPro could continue to function for many years to come. And while FoxPro is still a sophisticated and stable development tool, Microsoft will not be developing it any further.

What does this mean for companies using outdated applications? Changes to your applications will be more difficult and potentially more costly, since there are fewer skilled professionals who understand and are proficient with this development tool. We recommend converting to .NET, which is Microsoft’s flagship technology used by developers around the globe.

With .NET it is possible to create both traditional desktop applications, as well as browser-based applications, capable of running on an internet server. Browser-based applications can potentially extend the reach of your application by providing access to a wider geographic area as opposed to your traditional internal office network.
