Microsoft Visual FoxPro 6.0 download

Hi Experts,

I need a copy of Microsoft "Visual FoxPro 6.0" to run either in XP mode or if it works on Win7 64 bit would be better can someone please advise safest place to obtain please?

Reason: I have a client who had a custom made program written for his business and he still likes to use it as it contains all his previous years financials, I have built him a new PC and need to move it but he does not have a copy of Fox Pro and I cant seem to locate one.

thanks.

Sorry for delayed response, took some time out!

Great comments & thanks for the advice!

Thinking if that is the case the cheaper option for my customer is to create D2VHD and run it as  virtual image within Windows 7 can anyone see that being a problem for running it that way?

Then I don't have to worry about source codes and so forth.

cheers

The only thing I tried to do was copy the entire folder of VP6 from the XP PC to both another XP and Win7 attempted to run the executable but it couldn't run it (which I kind of expected).

I cant recall the message I received but can try again in the next day or two and post back.

Unless you have another suggestion.

cheers.
