The final published release of FoxPro was 2.6. Later, development continued under the Visual FoxPro label. FoxPro derived from FoxBase (by Fox Software), which was in turn derived from dBase III (by Ashton Tate). After acquiring Fox Software in 1992, FoxPro was. I haven't used VFP in Windows 8 or 10, but I think the main issue you'll face is that FP2.6 is 16-bit, so can't run directly in a 64-bit OS. You'll have to run it in a virtual 32-bit machine.

FoxPro, originally from Fox Software and later Microsoft, is a relational database that clones the functionality of dBase IV, but offers vast speed improvements. It was based on Fox Software's FoxBASE (a dBASE II clone) and FoxBASE+ (a dBase III Plus clone). It adds a new mac-like user interface that was first developed for FoxBASE+/Mac.

Foxpro 2.6 On Windows 10

I am running foxprow on Windows 2008 server, the last of the 32 bit operating systems (I think) and since Microsoft has stopped providing security updates, it's getting harder to find ways to keep the system operating in 2019. I would imagine that there are lots of companies in this predicament using Foxprow as well as other legacy applications. Has anyone come up with solutions? It's my limited understanding that the entire problem is 64 bit vs 32 bit which would lead me to believe some genius created a solution :)
Thanks for the replies received so far. I am adding more detail to my post for clarification.
My Foxprow 2.6 for Windows is successfully running on Windows 2008 Server. (installed patch may years ago)
I recently found out (yesterday) that Microsoft provides security updates for 2008 Server, but they have to be manually installed. Happy with that as this was a concern.
My father is the programmer, unfortunately he passed away in December 2018. I know a little coding and I am currently doing my best to 'maintain' the code. We never created an executable install. We simply have a folder with .PRGs and compiled .FXPs that make up the application. There are 30+ PRGs that my dad has developed since 1991 and we have continued to add features and functionality. We thought about migrating to Visual Foxpro, but he had concerns. I believe we did some general testing.
I'd like to remain with Fox 2.6 for no other reason then my dad isn't around to work out the bugs of migrating. So all I want to do is keep this system functioning as the hardware keeps advancing.
My setup looks like this....
In office: Windows 2008 Server (contains installed foxprow 2.6, subfolders with working files Dbfs, programs, Screens, forms.)
I connect via VPN to the Win 2008 server machine with my Win 10 PC and use remote desktop to run the application.
Other computers which are local to the server (in same office), have Foxprow installed and run the application.
Am I stuck on Win 2008 server?? Can I get modern hardware and software and have a similar setup. I need advice on how to modernize equipment and keep this setup.
Apologies that I am not being more technical in my description.
Thank you for taking time to reply and offering advice.
