Specs: MS-DOS, 566MHz / 128MB RAM
hi All,

Hi can someone please help me

I need advice on JUST How to use the BC.exe Link.exe in MS-DOS (for Visual Basic 1.0 pro)

Do I have to create lib form the forms etc I need to do it out side the VBDOS IDE as It is running out of memory

if someone can tell me how I can make VBDOS use more extended memory then I would be happy

this is the current system set-up (Mem /c)

I have Windows 3.11 installed on the unit as well as MS-DOS 6.22 (the extended memory is done by QEMM version 9)

Modules using memory below 1 MB:

Well I acually gave up on the VBDOS app and re coded it all in to FreeBASIC :) and I have to say I enjoyed it (finally got almost all my old QBIASC skills back)

And the new app is 32bit code so it can use ALL the memory with no problems :) so I is a happy boy :D
