I'm working at a company that has an old copy of Microsoft TechnNet 2005, and I was told else where that "If you have a license to MSDN Professional (or higher) you have a license to Visual FoxPro" I'm not sure what all is included with Microsoft TechNet 2005, so I am asking here if FoxPro is included with it. If not, where can I obtain it?

Why would you want to use an unsupported product? Visual FoxPro does not support 64-bit applications, it will never support them, and VFP itself is not currently supported by Microsoft. If you have a MSDN Professional license then you have a license to far better solutions. If you are really stuck on VFP, if you have a MSDN license, you have a license to use VFP also. – Ramhound Sep 4 '12 at 19:05
Even if you do have a copy of TechNet 2005. Unless you have a current subscription to TechNet you are no longer licensed for those licenses. – Ramhound Sep 4 '12 at 19:08

It's VERY unlikely Visual FoxPro would have been included with TechNet - FoxPro is a development tool - a programming language, TechNet is a product intended for learning and testing Microsoft products that generally don't involve serious development.

As to where you would obtain it - you had your answer - MSDN Subscription. Or you could look on ebay - but I don't generally trust software sold on e-bay. Not sure there would be any other legal route to getting it.
