Foxpro is still around?

Visual Studio isn't going to edit Foxpro.

Yeah the last version was released back in 1994 and even then was just about compatible with Windows 2000 when it came out. You're not going to have a lot of luck.

Being as this is primarily a development and learning to code site - had you considered making a modern version of the program from scratch? Actually building the program not just modifying someone else's 19 year old work? Wouldn't you love to make a version of this for Windows 8 that used all the modern features of gesture recognition or location services? Come on... you know you want to...


My standard beginner resources post - Updated JAN 2013


Plan your study route:
There are three routes people seem to take when learning programming.
  • Just start trying to create programs
  • Start taking apart other programs and try to figure out the language by reverse engineering
  • Follow a guided learning course (school or self-teaching books)


For the life of me I can't figure out why people try 1 & 2. I strongly suggest taking the guided learning approach. Those book authors go in a certain order for a reason: They know what they're doing and they know the best order to learn the materials.

  • First learn the language by working 2-5 "Learn C# in 30 days" type books cover to cover.
  • Do a dozen on-line tutorial projects where you build what you're told to build, the way you are told to build it WITH AN EXPLANATION OF WHY so you can learn.
  • Learn to plan before you type.
  • THEN you start designing software with a purpose.



I don't learn from reading books: I learn by doing.
