I support a company that has a very old, mission critical, FoxPro for DOS 2.6 (FPD) application.
For variuos reasons the company didn't adapt/migrate their app, which, ironically, has been running even better under Windows XP (and 32-bit Win7) because the OS allowed new features like more reliable networking, distributed printing, email integration. Unfortunately for this company, most new machines now come with a 64-bit version of Windows 7, which is incompatible with their FPD app.
I know this time the writing is on the wall: the only long-term solution is to migrate their app. But I wonder if anyone can suggest a temporary alternative path, which doesn't involve either:
downgrade 64-bit Windows to 32-bit, or
run the app on a virtualized 32-bit XP
