As you are probably aware, Microsoft is constantly improving Windows, Office, SQL Server, and other products with Service Packs and whole new versions. Several months ago, I posted about the effects of (or lack thereof) Windows XP SP2 on Visual FoxPro.

One of the things I've been working on of late is a method of automatically testing these updates with Visual FoxPro so that we can know way in advance of any potential issues. We were already doing this (called "sign-offs") before, but I'm trying to streamline the process and make the coverage more effective.

You can be sure that if there is an issue that's not external to VFP we will post the information in the appropriate venue, such as an entry at the VFP MSDN Support site, a KB article, or what not.  Our Product Support guys kick-ass and write great KB articles and provide great support.

If the issue does not warrant this, I will post an entry here on this blog discussing the issue as I did for SP2.  If you have any general questions you can always email me at and I'll be glad to get you whatever information I can.
