    Question Unanswered: Modem

    I am upgrading a Clipper 5.3 app to VFP 9. I need code for serial communication, specifically to dial a bulletin board, login, upload a file, download a file, logout. Would be willing to pay.

    The issue you will face is related to the current Windows OS's, not VFP.

    Windows OS's after Win98 have made it difficult to 'talk' directly to the workstation ports. Now that has to be done through Windows.

    There are a number of 3rd party applications/utilities which are commercially available which you can append to your VFP application which will allow you to 'talk' to the COM ports and through them to the Modem.

    A few of them include:

    There are others you will find if you Google: VFP Modem

    Good Luck
