Does anyone know where I can get a decompiler for a FoxPro5 .FXP file?

I have an old FoxPro5 application that we have lost the source code for. However I do have a compiled FXP file that contains this source code and running this file decrypts my tables to I can add/remove records without going through the exe ont eh desktop. I need to get the source code out of this file so we can work on the application. Can anyone help?

Refox Decompiler: http://www.refox.net/ 
If you are able to learn other languages you may buy the original Czech version which costs a half of the one translated to English :-).

The Refox does not help if your compiled programs are branded by it.

 Protects applications from unauthorised decompilation.
 ReFox offers five levels of protection.
 Level I and I+ still allow ReFox to recover the code.
 Level II, II+, III cannot be decompiled by ReFox.
LivingHell has VFP5 application, so levels II+ and III are not applicable. Level II is possible to decompile if you have appropriate VFP Run-time libraries and time to trace them. Levels I and I+ are effective just against Refox itself.

The best way is to download Refox demo and try to decompile the application.

Yeh, its been refoxed, and there's a password behind that too. The makers of Refox can't/won't assist as they say it can only be used by the original developers who refoxed the application in the first place. So despite the fact that the application was developed for us and is owned by us, because teh 3rd party developers have refoxed it we are not 'allowed' to decrypt it. Very frustrating!

The question is "Does anyone know where I can get a decompiler for a FoxPro5 .FXP file?" and the first answer is still valid.

Select the first answer as a solution.

Also to find another VFP decompiler is still possible.
