    Not trying to be rude here...
    But you are in MCSD newsgroup !!!!

    just curious.. did not know that people still used QBasic...
    oh well if it was a part of DOS... maybe you should consider installing
    could even try your luck with Windows 95.

    Alternatively you could look up google for QBasic interpreters !!!

    Go to:;en-us;135315

    There's a whole bunch of ldownloads at the bottom of the page.
    Look for the download for olddos.exe - click on it to download.
    (it's a whopping 836kb).

    Once downloaded, make sure you have olddos.exe in an empty
    folder. Double click to run it. Running it expands a bunch of old
    dos utilities into the folder. Among these are QBASIC.EXE and
    QBASIC.HLP, the 2 files you need to run QBasic.

    Double-click QBASIC.EXE to run QBasic in a DOS window.

    If you need any help with QBasic, is a good resource.

    Hope this helps.
