I had a application builted for me in 2002-2003 timeframe. I believe I have the source code but I cannot view it. The file types I have are - DBF, CDX, FPT, FRT, FRX, PJT, PJX, PRG, SCX, and SCT.

Is there a environment that still is avialable that I can use to see the code so that I can port it over to a more modern IDE
Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks

I think it should either foxpro for dos or foxpro for windows.

if it is foxpro for dos you have to install foxpro for dos. if it is foxpro for windows you have to install foxpro for windows.

if it is dos foxpro

install foxpro

type foxpro and press enter

if it is windows foxpro then you have to install foxpro for windows and click on the icon

to get to foxpro.

prg is a program

dbf is a database file

cdx is a index file

frt and frx are reports

pjt and pjx are project files (used to make exe and holds all prg's, frt,frx and all other components)

scx and sct are data entry screens (i.e. forms)

if all the abvoe are stored in c:\newproj

then after loading foxpro say

set default to c:\newproj

modi proj <filename.pjt> will open the project (you have to give filename which is having pjt and pjx extension)

then u can open program, screen, report etc by entering or clicking.

or u can open program by

modify command <filename.prg>

modify screen <filename.sct> (screens opening)

modify report <filename.frt> (report opening)

to see the data

use <filename.dbf>

brow

hope this helps

No...it doesn't have to be Foxpro for Dos or Foxpro for Windows.

It can also be Visual Foxpro. All these files are VFP files as well. As a matter of fact, if the softwaer was developed in 2001, its probably VFP.

Now... The fact that you're talking about 'modern IDE' may point to the fact that this is Foxpro Dos.

i am very sorry. i thought foxpro for dos and foxpro for windows are freeware. later when u posted i checked up with my friend and came to know that it is illegal. i will never be sharing the copyrighted software.

i am very sorry that i did not check it before posting.

thank you very much.

Hi there,

You have the project files (PJT and PJX) so somebody can take a look at the project and the code...

But more important, Where do you want to port it to.....

A more modern look or web enabled or.....

Leo
