Clipper and FoxPro migration

Migrate your legacy application to Windows


Even now in 2019, we get inquiries from companies of all sizes saying they have mission-critical programs written twenty years ago in Clipper or FoxPro that need to be moved to a modern Windows interface. We can do it.

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. Further, we can use your existing data files and at least some of the original source code 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. Such functionality does not exist in Windows except at great cost. The existing code was converted and the visas now print in Windows.

Membership application for a fraternal order. A national fraternal organization has been tracking their membership and printing their yearbook in a DOS-based application since the 1990’s. Rules governing ranks and titles are complex. The functionality of the original program has been migrated to Windows.

Massachusetts manufacturer. The manufacturer was entering orders and printing invoices in a Clipper application. It has been converted to Windows, with considerable added new functionality as well as a new module that creates estimates, which due to the type of business, is quite complicated.

Support for existing FoxPro and Clipper programs

We support all versions of FoxPro and Clipper and can make whatever changes you might need to them, including new reports, screens, and functionality. This includes modern versions of FoxPro. We can also migrate FoxPro to the cloud.

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. Most email services block EXEs from being sent so EXE files  will need to be sent using Dropbox or a similar service. Email us for details.

Data conversion

We convert Clipper and FoxPro data files to whatever format you want (including Flexfile memo fields, Dbase7, Clarion, and many other formats.) Our data conversion page has full details.

What to do

The easiest way for us to determine what a conversion would entail is to examine the source code. Once we’ve looked at the code, we will provide a detailed free estimate. We do not need to be onsite at your location to do a conversion. Virtually all our work is done remotely.
