|I'm currently running QBasic 1.1 (which was a required version for my course) on WinXP. below is how to install|
Make a folder on your drive named 'qbasic'
Then go to http://www.geocities.com/Area51/5967/qbasic.html
Click on the (broken) picture beside Download Qbasic 1.1, which is about halfway down the page. You will see an alert window after you click. Choose 'Save'. Once you click the 'Save' button, a window will open showing the directories and files on your PC. Navigate to the 'qbasic' directory you created above and save the file (named olddos.exe) to that location.
To install the program, double click the olddos.exe file you downloaded. Note the warnings. MAKE SURE you have the olddos.exe safely in your qbasic directory (that you created) before double-clicking.
The olddos.exe file will extract a number of files associated with QBasic. To run simply double-click the qbasic.exe file
