Migrating to .NET Framework

Migrating to .NET Framework

Why migrate VFP to .NET

Visual FoxPro was a dynamic development platform used for many mission-critical applications. But the time has come to move out with the old and in with the new. Other than not being up to date on meeting the market’s expectations, your business will lag behind literally and metaphorically as the computing world has moved onto 64 bit, VFP still runs on 32 bit.

The logical solution is to migrate to the .NET Core Framework.

  • The .NET Core framework provides language interoperability (conformity) enabling developers to leverage the best features across multiple programming languages.
  • The .NET framework also provides a large library, Visual Studio Intergraded Development Environment, and Microsoft SQL Server.
  • The Visual FoxPro relational database ports well, suiting SQL Server.
  • The .NET framework supports web, mobile and client-server environments giving developers the ability to build a robust application.

What Main Reason is Driving your Need to Convert from VFP?

Strong expertise in Visual FoxPro and the .NET languages are required for a successful migration. Migration of your Visual FoxPro to .NET paves the way to easily implement future changes and enhancements. Maintenance and support of VFP are expensive when compared with many of the modern technologies. Finding VFP experts will also become difficult as many VFP developers are nearing retirement.

After Microsoft stopped support for VFP, forums were filled with short-term solutions, but none of them is viable for a long-term business.  Contact Macrosoft to discuss your migration requirements.
