VPME to SQL Toolkit

On March 23, 2011, we reported that we were working on a VPME to MS SQL Server Toolkit for release this spring. Well, spring ends today. So, we thought a news update was in order.

As a result of our March 23 post, we received a lot of feedback from ProMatrix users asking if we were also going to provide a VPME to MySQL Toolkit.

We had planned to eventually turn to MySQL, but given the interest in MySQL, we have decided to give a MySQL Toolkit a boost in priority.

VPME to MS SQL Server Toolkit

As you probably know, there are no better tools for creating front-ends to MS SQL Server than Visual FoxPro 9.0 and VPME 9.1.

In the last few years, we have been assisting VPME 9.1 users in converting VPME 9.1 applications to use SQL Server data. In fact, there seems to be growing interest in using VPME 9.1 with SQL Server.

During our work in helping VPME 9.1 users make the conversion, we have learned a lot about how to perform the conversion and we have created conversion tools that make the conversion much easier. For example, we now have SQL Server versions of all the system databases that VPME 9.1 puts into an application. We also have remote view databases that allow a VPME 9.1 application to connect to the SQL Server system databases.
