Why Visual FoxPro Systems Need to Be Converted

We wrote our first FoxBASE (the original name of FoxPro) program in 1985 and have kept current with this development tool through all its incarnations up to Visual FoxPro 9. Our company has developed many Visual FoxPro applications over the years and still maintains many of them. We’ve developed applications for a variety of different industries, and were involved in developing a full accounting application for a major electrical distributor.

That having been said, Microsoft has chosen, after more than 30 years, to kill Visual FoxPro without providing a direct replacement. Thus, while we can still help you to maintain a Visual FoxPro developed system, our consultants can also help you to convert your Visual FoxPro database and applications to web-based applications while using other modern design tools.

Visual FoxPro Conversion Tools

What tools and software do our Visual FoxPro consultants use to update your current systems? We are also experienced and knowledgeable with the following:

We recommend that most of our clients convert an existing database from Visual FoxPro to web-based solutions with MS SQL as the back end for custom software development. This allows for greater scalability as your company grows. When using MS SQL database for the back end development, you get a significantly better solution than using dbf tables as in Visual FoxPro. MS SQL is more powerful and secured. This results in a better foundation for custom software and applications development.

Migrating Visual FoxPro with the .NET Platform

When it comes to legacy systems developed by Visual FoxPro consultants, the best platform for future enhancements is .NET – Microsoft’s most up-to-date developer framework. Our Visual FoxPro consultants are also knowledgeable and experienced .NET developers, giving your company the best of both worlds – consultants who can not only rapidly create powerful web and mobile-based applications using a modern framework, but who also understand the framework of your existing systems. The results are a system that is:

  • Secure and stable with MS updates and support
  • Scalable to meet present and future business needs
  • Accessible to web and mobile users
  • Powerful in performance to meet your unique business needs
