Greetings.........

I bought a basic application that doesn't print out a hard
copy properly. The sellers of same can't figure out what
the problem w/their code is. Would like to get a "bare bones"
Qbasic app without mortgaging my very being.
Am I asking too much, or is my need doable?

Many thanks for anything........chuckles :-|

Well Qbasic is basically free since it came with msdos from version 5 - Windows
98 /MSDOS 6.2

It's around on several web sites.

Versions 4-7.1 of Quick Basic are available too (free). Whether it is technically legal to download them is another matter.

Found free QBasic. Won't work w/WinXP.

Many thanks to all who aided!

Hi, don't quite understand what you mean by it is not working with Windows XP. It should work in a DOS environent which you can simulate in Windows XP. Of course, in any case, QBasic won't give you a Windows-like appearance.

You may try switching to the following versions of BASIC compilers/interpreters:

1. Just BASIC at http://www.justbasic.com/index.html
2. Xblite at http://perso.wanadoo.fr/xblite/
3. Small BASIC at http://smallbasic.sourceforge.net/

Each of them has its own advantages. But small applications I encourage Small BASIC. And, by the way, you might need to modify the codes accordingly if the codes were originally written for QBasic.

Found free QBasic. Won't work w/WinXP.

Many thanks to all who aided!
