Hi Alex

>> Thanks a lot for your reply. But I would like to ask you how can I find or where do I find to have a wine package in order to use the VFP on a linux or any unix environment? Hope you can help me on this. thanks again.

You keep asking this question and are being told the same thing over and over again. Although WINE will allow you to run VFP under Linux, it is not legal to distribute applications that use VFP to run on any platform other than Windows.

It is possible (though not tested under law) that it would be acceptable to use WINE to run full development versions of VFP but that is the only thing that may be legal.

Any way you look at this, trying to use VFP for anything other than personal R&D on a Linux platform is NOT a good idea and may get you into trouble (Microsoft DO monitor forums like this you know, and they DO take action when they find their rights being infringed....)
