I have a bit of a problem here. I am looking into a few options. First of all, I have a program that was written in GWBASIC and it runs great on a DOS machine. It will even run in Windows 2000 under QBasic if you run it from there, but the .exe will not run under 2000 or XP.
I would like to solve this in a 2 steps. 1st, I would like to get the current program to compile so I can run it in 2000/XP. The program does quite a bit of interesting things such as screen calls and drawing graphics, it's quite a program in it's day. How do I compile this program into something that I can run in the 2000/XP environment?
If I can get this to work, this will just solve the initial problem. Eventually I need to rewrite it in like VB.NET. Does VB.NET have the capability of doing the kids of graphics that this current BASIC program can do such as drawing objects and then based on numbers for that object, change the drawing on the fly...
Thanks for the information. I am most interested in getting this program to run in the 2000/XP environment 1st then worry about the 2nd part later. This would buy us some time.
