FoxPro 2.0 for DOS

Microsoft FoxPro 2.0 for DOS

Determining FoxPro 2.0 version number: I'm told that in all the extensive documentation with FoxPro, the only place where it says which version you have is on a small piece of paper (approximately 3.5" x 8.5" ) which has the activation key, serial number and is printed "FoxPro Single User" (or perhaps multi-user for the multi-user LAN version). The top of this paper starts off in bold letters saying: "NOTE: DO NOT THROW AWAY!"

The earlier style of manuals, used by Fox Software, probably included some combination of:
Commands and Functions
Developer's Guide
Getting Started, title page dated August 1991

Special Upgrade for FoxPro/LAN, 6 users: 215-199-249

General license information for FoxPro 2.5 (DOS and Windows). According to the FTP Companion Products and Services Directory, Summer/Fall 1993: You need licenses to match the maximum number of users running FoxPro off a network at any one time. For example, if you have five workers who have the FoxPro database management system on their hard disks, you need five licenses. If you have an additional 10 users who only run FoxPro off the network, you would need to purchase as many additional licenses as there are people who want to run FoxPro at the same time - in this case, up to 10 more licenses. If you have FoxPro or most any MS application product loaded on the hard disk of a computer, and you are the person using that computer at least 80% of the time that computer is being used, you may make a second copy for home or laptop use. Note, however, that if other people need to use FoxPro on your home or laptop computer, you must purchase an additional license.

Visual FoxPro 3 Professional for Power Macintosh

Info thanks to J.R. Diskinson: Version : 3.0b - Version Date : May 7, 1996. CD Disk Assy. : 215-088-002, 0396 Part No. 69065. Version : 3.0b

I am a bit confused about the version history of the Fox/Mac line. I've seen VFP/Mac 3.0 mentioned as well as versions 3.0a and 3.0b, but after trawling through the MS Knowledge Base (or whatever they're calling it this week) I found a buglist for all the Fox products produced by MS on all platforms. This lists versions 3.0 and 3.0b for Windows but only version 3.0b of VFP/Mac. This might be explained by the following from the MS VFP FAQ (my archived copy states this information was last updated Feb. 5, 1996): 'Visual FoxPro version 3.0a is a Double Byte Character Set (DBCS) enabled release for the Far East only. Visual FoxPro 3.0a is not available in the United States market. Visual FoxPro version 3.0b is a worldwide release that supports DBCS and is also the version that synchronizes Visual FoxPro with the final releases of Win32s and Open DataBase Connectivity (ODBC).' If version 3.0b for Windows was shipping by the time this FAQ was updated and since the Mac version of VFP wasn't released to manufacturing until May 96, this suggests that there was only ever a Mac version 3.0b for sale worldwide outside the Far East. Do you know different?
