Hello Manni

In the interests of "version control" it is better that anyone who wants the program downloads it from here.

Although, as already mentioned, a revised version is in the pipeline, so I would urge folk to wait (only a few days, hopefully) for that to emerge.

That way, any user feedback, bug reports and what-have-you, would apply to the latest version.

I (still) don't have a 64-bit machine myself, but other users have reported running TM OK on 64-bit laptops.

You may (or may not) need to change the Compatibility Mode setting under the Compatibility tab on the Properties form for the desktop icon you are using.

Recent versions of TM were compiled under 32-bit Win 7. smile

FoxBASE was really a dBASE III clone (but better in many ways). The next step in the evolution was FoxPro, which began to move away from true compatibility with the dBASE language.

dBASE caught up (and in many ways leap-frogged) to some extent when dBASE 5.0 for DOS was released; but unfortunately that was the last hurrah of dBASE for DOS.

But yes, I agree, Fox - and especially FoxPro 2.6 for DOS (the last one), is the language of the Gods! smile

And ... as you hinted at, it runs very nicely and does good work on "primitive" machines - and even (as I sometimes do) on top of emulators such as DOSBox, vDos, vDosPlus et al running in Windows.

Quality software never really dies, despite the best efforts of Microsoft (in the case of Visual FoxPro) to kill it off. Gee-whiz wonderware comes and goes, but solid coding platforms simply soldier on doing real work (often behind the scenes of today's "pretty interfaces").

Which (what) software are you interested in, Kuman?

Do you mean this?
