    Quick Easy Programming In Win10?


    I used to sit down and fire up Basic - command line stuff of course - and put in a few commands and get done whatever I wanted to have done.

    Read text files, input them to arrays, play with them. output what I wanted. Write it to a file.

    No compiling. No messing with IDEs. No messing with anything.

    Now I find Basic just won't run on win10 apparently. None of them. Or if they do it's a hassle with Dos boxes and whatever.

    What can I do to be able to sit down at my win10 machine and almost immediately be inputting code and getting output?

    You could think about installing a vmware solution and installing an older version of Windows. One that is compatible with your software.

    Html? Ruby is cool but if you really want to have fun, try c#(I DID read your post about not wanting to compile so probably not that great of an ootion)

    Setting up DOSBox or for that matter Oracle's VirtualBox is very easy. I use VirtualBox to run some old programs. I have it set up to read my "Data" drive which it does with no problems. Also check out QBasic Compiler and Software, Articles and Tutorials they have free set up software for QBasic to DOSBox.

    Microsoft offer a free "starter" version of Visual Basic, called Microsoft Small Basic
    see:

    Microsoft Small Basic

    There are downloads, tutorials and free examples and much more on offer from links on the page.

    If you want to try more fully-featured Microsoft Programming tools and environments Microsoft offers development tools through MSDN and the Dev Center to users with Microsoft accounts.

    For instance, there is a developer version of Windows 10 with Visual Studio and other tools in a large download available here as a VM (Virtual Machine) which can be run as an Enterprise Trial, a VM or as a native VHD boot on a PC that has a digital license for Windows 10.

    I just came across QB64:

    Welcome to the QB64 Programming WIKI
    QB64 is a modern version of the Basic programming language that allows programs created using Quick Basic 4.5 or Qbasic to run on Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10, Linux and Mac OSX. It will work on 32 or 64 bit machines and has many new features such as stereo sound, improved graphics and TCP/IP internet capabilities. QB64 can make reliable programs or games for the entire family!
    If you're interested you can download it from the www.qb64.net
    You can find their wiki page at www.qb64.net/wiki

    Hope this helps.

    PowerShell is built into Windows and current versions border on full-on programming language capabilities (including compilation) even though it's a scripting language ... and reasonably easy to learn and use at that! See TechNet for a raft of guides, introductions, and reference materials.

    Agreed.. PS is super for scripting, but I think the OP is a VB guy that uses the old Active-X stuff?... but then who am I to talk, I was a baby and grew up with IDE's... LOL

    Yes, Superfly you are right. But PS comes close to doing most of what VB could do back in the day. It will be interesting to see what the OP settles on as "the right solution" for his or her purposes. I go all the way back to socket libraries meself....
