1. Why do we need the VFP Advanced?

     Microsoft is a great corporation who released Visual FoxPro 9.0,
     but there is a bad message from the VFP team:
     http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vfoxpro/bb308952.aspx

     That is no VFP 10 and the VFP team will not fix the BUGs in Visual FoxPro 9.0.

     I have found some BUGs in Visual FoxPro 9.0 and try to fix it.

     1, VFP 9.0 Fix - Report Footer
     2, VFP 9.0 Fix2 - Macro Substitution

     12, VFP 9.0 Fix12 - File Handle Number Zero
     13, VFP 9.0 Fix13 - OS() Function
     14, VFP 9.0 Fix14 - Grid.Optimize Property
     15, VFP 9.0 Fix15 - Property Names To Lowercase
     16, VFP 9.0 Fix16 - ComboBox Control Enter An Infinite Loop
     17, VFP 9.0 Fix17 - Saving The Setting Of Set Collate To Machine
     18, VFP 9.0 Fix18 - Moving The Dockable Windows
     19, VFP 9.0 Fix19 - SYS(9000) Automatic Dock The Dockable Windows
     20, VFP 9.0 Fix20 - Header.ToolTipText Property
     21, VFP 9.0 Fix21 - SYS(9079) Clean The System Data Buffer
     22, VFP 9.0 Fix22 - Set Resource Off At Startup
     23, VFP 9.0 Fix23 - SYS(9001) Adjust The Precision Of The Floating-point Numbers
     24, VFP 9.0 Fix24 - ROUND() Function
     25, VFP 9.0 Fix25 - The Docked Command Window Is Shown
     26, VFP 9.0 Fix26 - The Select Union Command With Memo Fields
     27, VFP 9.0 Fix27 - EditBox Control Enter An Infinite Loop
     28, VFP 9.0 Fix28 - Locate Files In The Application Data Directory

     30, VFP 9.0 Fix30 - The Top Level Form Caption Disappeared

     Now I am working for the VFP Advanced 64-bit version project, I think VFP will not die, VFP will continue ...


2. What is the VFP Advanced?

     1, VFP Advanced = VFP 9.0.0.7423 (SP2) + VFP 9.0 Fixes, it is an unofficial service package.

     2, Support for all languages same as VFP 9.0, and there is no VFPA???.DLL, it has been merged to VFPA.EXE.

     3, Now there is a VFP Advanced 32-bit version and a VFP Advanced 64-bit Beta version.


3. What is the difference between VFP Advanced and VFP 9.0?

     VFP Advanced is 100% compatible with VFP 9.0.
