i don't know about codejock but usually we use Visual Studio or Microsoft Visual Basic. Unless of course the application is compiled. But in your case you have the vbp, bas, frx & frm, so i guess you need to use the Visual Basic IDE.

Boy, now thats a 500 point question I wish I saw first.  Hee hee.

Pepi is correct, you need to buy Microsoft Visual Basic.  It can be purchased individually or packaged with C++, Foxpro, etc. in the Visual Studio package.

Now, if the program is simple enough you could convert it to VBA and maybe run it under Excel or Access or any other application that support VBA (macros).  Though, keep in mind that it is likely that you will need to tweak and limit the source code considerably to get it to do anything useful under VBA.  So, I wouldn't suggest trying it unless the code is simple and doesn't do much output on the form (frm).
