DOWNLOADING MICROSOFT QUICK BASIC 4.5 ON A WINDOWS 10 NOTEBOOK RRS feed

  • Question

  • For years I have used QuickBasic 4.5 on a 286 desktop computer.  It is bit of an antique by todays standards but it did the job for what I used it for.

    I now have a new notebook with Windows 10 and I would like to do my QuickBasic 4.5 programing on it.

    I would like advice on a safe web site that I can use to download QuickBasic 4.5. By safe, I mean as safe as is practical.

    I am aware of at least three DOS Emulators ie. vDos,  vDos Plus and DosBox.  I again need advice on which DOS Emulator is the best fit with QuickBasic 4.5 and a safe web site for downloading.  As I am not familiar with the use of a DOS Emulator, the availability of a tutorial would be helpful

    Thank you

  • Might also try here.

    http://www.qb64.net/

    but there's no way for us to know what sites are safe so you'll have to make those determinations on your own.
