QBasic 45

Post by Zooker » Tue Aug 04, 2009 10:40 pm

I 'm trying to re write a program I wrote in Basic PDS 7.11 for dos so that it will run in windows X.Will the above compiler if run under win XP compile the program to a Windows program and run in win XP?
Would a Genuis ask these kinds of stupid Questions?

I guess no one cant guarantee that. I would recommend you to try freebasic.net or qb64.com instead.

Can you run the program module in XP now? Is it a fullscreen mode?

Are your problems from XP, QB or PDS(7.1)? All run on my XP.

If the XP is a 64 bit version, then QB and DOS cannot run fullscreen. Which leaves you with SCREEN 0 only or DOSBOX (free on web).
