    What is wrong with this statement: "The fastest way to install VFP 5.0 on a new machine is to zip up the VFP directory and all subdirectories and then unzip on the target machine."

    What's wrong with it?? Visual Fox Pro is a licensed product, so you have to buy with your $$$ a copy for each computer on which you want to install it. During the installation process VFP changes registry settings on the computer. So if all you do is zip it up on one computer and unzip it on another that version most likely won't work because it was not installed properly.

    Doing that is what's commonly called "software piracy", and is illegal. You get caught and it could cost you a lot more than the price of the original software.
