Foxprow 2.6 / Cryptor

Foxprow 2.6 / Cryptor

Foxprow 2.6 / Cryptor

We are running foxpro for windows 2.6 and looking to upgrade security of DBF files. I was advised by this forum to research Cryptor. I have done so, however, it appears that Xitech, a UK based company is defunct, though they have a functioning website. Their phones are disconnected and they do not respond to email. Does anyone have a copy of Cryptor for sale that works with Foxprow 2.6 (thinking prior to version 4) or know where it can be purchased? I am also looking for any guidance on set up.


RE: Foxprow 2.6 / Cryptor

I didn't know that Xitech had gone out of business. But it they have, I wonder if you are going about it the right way by looking for a second-hand copy of their product. Even if you find one, you won't get any support and it won't be maintained. Would it be better to look for some other encryption tool?

That said, I see there are some vendors around that claim to be offering Cryptor - or some version of it. A firm called SharpLogica has a product which is a free download on CNET. But I have no idea if it is the same as Xitech's product, or they are just capitalising on the name. If you take that route, tread carefully.

I think you can forget it for Foxpro 2.6 - see http://fox.wikis.com/wc.dll?Wiki~Cryptor~Wiki

Quote (wiki)

6b. Is Cryptor compatible with VFP 3, 5, 6 and 7?
A: According to the page on foxshop.de, it is compatible with versions 5, 6 and 7, which implies that it is not compatible with VFP version 3.

I read this as minimum VFP version is 5, so forget about 2.6, also 2.6 Windows version.

The wiki article mentions NetLib, you might ask them or try the evaluation version: https://netlibsecurity.com/products/encryption-des...

Bye, Olaf.

RE: Foxprow 2.6 / Cryptor

Thanks for the quick response guys, I appreciate it. I didn't mean to post on the VFP thread Mike G, that was accidental. Thanks for alerting me and the redirect link. Mike L, thanks, I'll check it out. Olaf, will review.
