    How far are you going to upgrade? DOS programs get harder to run on newer versions of Windows. I would suggest you consider upgrading your DOS database program to a Windows database program such as Access in MS Office. Then you should be able to use FoxPro to save your data in a "Comma Separated Value" (CSV) format. Access will import the CSV file and your data is converted and your program updated.

Well the good news because it dos based, it should be very self contained for example if the program is in a folder called foxapp, copy this folder and sub folders and all contents to the new machine,

if it don't work you missed something , just a case of having a look at other folder names most fox apps I wrote were contained within it own folder.

Many DOS programs were designed to write directly to the printer's buffer, rather than to a spooler like more modern applications. It sounds like FoxPro is doing exactly that - and isn't designed to release the job until being completely closed.
