"VFP review"

What do you like best?

I like the easiest way the VFP provides to deal with the DBF tables using VFP code, also I like that it works easily with SQL tables using SQLEXEC function, also its IDE is very productive while programming and debugging as it provides some helpful tools to debug like Watch, local memory, Call stack, etc..

What do you dislike?

The big problem with VFP, is its DBF table's limitation as it became corrupted after it reaches more that 2GB, also sometimes when its memo field being corrupted, you won't be able to use the table until you release this corruption, also sometimes some crashes happened for no reasons, and last and not least it is not supported officially by Microsoft.

"VFP the easiest way to deal with tables"

What do you like best?

I like the easy way to access and manage DBF data, I really like the smart tools provided to trace a problem as it allows me to catch the programming command with problem in a very few steps and it allows me to check the call stack in any part of execution, also it provides a great code behind feature, it allows me to either enter all the code in the screen's methods or to just call a function from a separate program, it allows me to create our custom controls and forms and use it in all our programming work as a framework

What do you dislike?

I don't like the DBF size limitation and its UI needs to be enhanced

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Daily programming work in our live old products

What Object-Oriented Databases solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Nothing much as I believe I need a guiding materials for other tool and features that I don't know how to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a good software program for beginners as the software is user friendly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was creating a student registration system and I realize to have user friendly programming software benefited me more to create in less time or able to get into my deadline.

"functional software"

What do you like best?

This software is very functional, however the user interface is not so friendly. I think it could be more modern and optimize its appearance in order to make it more pleasant

What do you dislike?

it's really like a retrospective to the past for my taste is not nice visually it's like something old-fashioned could be much better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a very stable program but at the same time very basic its interface is very old and the image is not so friendly or does not have a harmonious design.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

this type of software allows to organize many of the processes of orders dispatches of consumables and rotables of the organization but it does not have connection in real time to request replenishment of stock in the organization that is why it is limited

"Very easy and reliable backup but pricey"

What do you like best?

This product works well, and is easy to set up. It is not just backup, but also backup and data recovery.

What do you dislike?

Its pricey compared to other backup solutions so you have to weigh that against its shininess.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look at Storage Craft, or Cloudberry. If you still need BDR (i.e. bare metal restore in the cloud) this is an easy way to go.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

BDR - namely you can spin up a copy of a workstation or server in the cloud in less than 30 minutes using this product. It also backs up and archives files.

"Visual Fox Pro"

What do you like best?

The software seems to have a lot of programs available within it.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the system is slow to pull up information and multiple records at 1 time. I believe there is a lot of programming behind the scenes by our IT personal.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I am not the person who did the implementation so I can't tell you how that would go. However, as a user of the program I am not always happy with how it works for the information I use the program for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is being used as our CRM and order processing program

"Visual FoxPro pros and cons"

What do you like best?

Microsoft Visual FoxPro is a programming language with it's own IDE and database - it's kind of combination between Access and VB.NET+SQL Server. I like that the database has no overall size limit not like MS access. Also, I like that with VFP can build COM Server DLLs, including multithreaded DLLs.

What do you dislike?

The biggest problem of VFP is secruity because databases can be encrypted using third party and access rights or roles on the data have to be implemented.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are good with programming language then this can be helpful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I tried to use as for my database - there wasn't much benefits except the programming language.
