I am looking to purchase an update to Visual FoxPro 9.0 Professional version for my 8.0 version. I realize that 9.0 was the last release in 2007, but am looking to upgrade to that last release. Cannot seem to find anything on the internet.

The upgrade is not available already which is a right of the software vendor... BUT it is even difficult to find the full VFP version. It would be good to know what Microsoft is offering as an alternative to the missing product.

It seems the time of Torrents is comming...

You may also look for open license (VFP has product No. 340-01244) which requires to buy 4 licenses of something else... Or try some eBay search etc.

Visual FoxPro is also included in Visual Studio Professional 2012 with MSDN. Much more expensive than the simple upgrade to VFP9.

I've been asking several distributors and the result is as supposed:
You have to buy the VFP 9 OLP license + 4 other products, e.g.  4x  66J-05385 ($10 each).

VFP 9 SP2 is then free. Three additional hotfixes are also free. The final VFP 9 version is 9.00.0000.7423 dated in 2009. Newer patches are unofficial from China...

OLP program is available in many software stores and on the net.

Latest VFP 9 add-ons are free at VFPX web: http://vfpx.codeplex.com/

I appreciate the answers. I still do not see anything available even in a pro-boxed release. Shame. I remember moving frome Ashton-Tate dB III over to FoxPro outside of Toledo many, many, many ages ago. I always got the new versions even after MS bought them. For whatever reason, I totaly missed 9.0!

VFP 9 is available e.g. here: http://www.cdw.com/shop/products/Microsoft-Visual-FoxPro-Professional-Edition-v.-9.0-license/748846.aspx

CDW also offers the 66J-05385:

I don't know the country of your residence to decide what software distributor is close to you but Microsoft OLP is available across the world so you may ask anywhere giving them product numbers.
