Visual FoxPro Application
Visual FoxPro (VFP) is a well-known product of Microsoft ecosystem that supports a rapid app development. In the middle of 90s, it was frequently used to build data-centric desktop applications for various industries. Since then, technology moved further enough, and Visual FoxPro modernization became a real need.
Why Should You Update the Visual FoxPro App?
Microsoft, the parent company, declined the support of Visual FoxPro in 2008.
It means security flaws could suddenly occurred to every company who has its legacy system written on VFP.
Necessary Updates to Windows Could Break the App
It Isn’t Compatible with Modern 64-bit Operating Systems
Data Could Be Easily Compromised Due to a File-based Database Structure
Migrate or Maintain Visual FoxPro App?
Outdated VFP app could cover business needs to some extent. However, with years, its maintenance become more and more expensive. Calculations are quite simple — the system requires specific hardware, and licenses for old databases, or libraries. Supporting those apps are like pulling a dead weight for centuries. But there some good news too.
Owners of Visual FoxPro solutions could reap the benefit of these legacy applications following 2 ways:
- make improvements,
- or think of migrating to a stable platform.
Our Approach on Dealing with
Legacy Visual FoxPro System
No one wants to totally replace legacy apps. It’s a risky option that threatens the surge of costs. But, in a nutshell, every modern app must correspond to such criteria:
- Security and privacy
- Inexpensive and automated deployment
Visual FoxPro environment unable to address those needs. As a reliable legacy modernization company, ModLogix modernize and migrate VFP apps preserving business logic and reducing risk.
Visual FoxPro Application Modernization
Modernization is indeed the best path to makeover legacy systems. It doesn’t require big upfront investments or “big-bang” releases. Depending on your needs, a qualified vendor supports the old system, while broadening app's capabilities. Source code and initial structure remains the same in the meantime. In such a way, business owns commercially viable software.

Visual FoxPro Migration
Migration is a more radical approach to legacy VFP apps. Mostly, companies rely on conversion tools that automatically transfer FoxPro code to the new .NET platform. However, this cannot be considered as a holistic approach as far as it requires a lot of cleans-up.
If you decide on migration, ask a consultation from an experienced provider that will ensure a trouble-shoot process.
