Clipper migration. FoxPro migration

Migrate your legacy application to Windows


Even now in 2020, we get inquiries from companies of all sizes saying they have mission-critical programs written years ago in Clipper or FoxPro that need to be moved to a modern Windows interface. We specialize in Clipper migration and FoxPro migration.

Your new program will run on any version of Windows and be able to print to any printer. It will have a GUI interface with all the functionality of a modern Windows program. Your existing data files and at least some of the original source code can be used with few changes needed. This greatly speeds up the process, cuts costs, and leverages your investment.

This is by far the most cost-effective way of moving your aging FoxPro or Clipper application to Windows.

Ongoing and recent projects include:

Convert visa tracking application to Windows for household name institution. The application tracks and prints visas for thousands of travelers each year. A team of twenty employees process traveler information and itineraries. The original application lets users to enter specifications for visas, then prints them.

Clipper and FoxPro decompiling


You’ve lost your Clipper or Foxpro source code and are panicking because you need it. We can help! Our decompiler services can often re-create missing source code from the executable. We decompile Clipper and FoxPro applications within 24 hours and email you the source code. The cost is $75. You can pay using PayPal. There is no charge if it won’t decompile.

Not all programs can be decompiled. The decompiling price does not include recompiling.

Recompiling FoxPro is generally straighforward. However, depending on how the original program was written, recompiling Clipper can be extremely complicated. Also, we must have any third-party LIBs used in compiling and linking the orginal Clipper program. Without them, recompiling is impossible. Contact us for more information.
