You can tell Microsoft Visual FoxPro to use an external editor for editing project files.

To tell MS VFP to use Vim, use regedit to locate:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualFoxPro\5.0\Options]

and create a new item

TEDIT

with string content

"/N C:\Progra~1\vim\vim61\gvim.exe"

(or whatever your path to Vim happens to be).

This will not replace the internal VFP editor for such things as modifying the "click method" for a button (unfortunately), but when you modify a program, VFP will fire up gvim.
