Can I easily convert gwbasic to C++?

Specs: Windows 7 64bit, Core I7 /6GB ddr3
Old 16 bit programs written in gwbasic will not work in 64 bit Windows 7. Is there an easy conversion to 32 bit or 64 bit C++ or C sharp?

No but there are other versions of BASIC which are easier to convert to, ex. FreeBasic.

How good are you at C++ or C#?

I doubt that you will find a means of automatically converting the programs, but it shouldn't be too difficult to do it manually.

You may download MS Virtual PC (free) or VirtualBox and run your GWBASIC programs inside the virtual machine under MS DOS or one of its clones as FreeDOS or DR DOS. so avoiding any conversion process.

If you don't want to deal with DOS installation you can try DOSBox that offers a builtin emulator and should work for your purpose.

Thanks everyone but I have more than 100 programs to convert or rewrite to c# to interface with one management program we are writing.

I'm looking for an easy way to convert them to possibly save 100s of hours of tedious conversion. I have found BSX which works somewhat. Looking for something that might be better.
