    Anyone know where to get VB for DOS? I'm not even convinved it exists, but I've heard it mentioned a few times...

    I looked on MS's site but couldn't find anything less than VB3 for Win3.X

    While I'm at it, what about VB for the Mac? I've used REALbasic a bit, but it's just not the same...never really liked Macs anyhow!!

    So, er yeah, VB for DOS & Mac? Any ideas?

    Visual Basic requires Microsoft Windows. There is no compatibilty for DOS or Macintosh. But I am guessing that there could be a way to manipulate a FULL SCREEN form to appear like DOS. That's about all I can think of. If you want to program for Mac. Use the C++ or One Easy Click Languages.

    Before the Windows®, there was Qbasic (not G ; it's for DOS programming. It's so much different, because ur working with a different OS.
    It's only 3/8MB big
    I got the full version which compiles. Its good for the simple programs. Somethings are harder to do in QB(QBasic)then VB, and then it's sometimes the other way around =]

    Look at this site:

    www.strgame.com/appz.html

    They have a thing called VB 1.0, although I don't know wether it's for DOS or Windows.

    Hey, I KNOW this is a warezz site, please don't blame me, I guess VB 1.0 is so old it could pretty well be freeware!

    3.0 and previous versions of VB had a version available for DOS.

    Hi !

    Believe it or not but many years earlier there was indeed a VB for Dos. It was called GBasic (can't really remember but I think that was the name).

    You will maybe get it from some very *dark* ftp-servers, maybe.

    Why do you want it ? For DOS-Apps use Pascal or C, but not VB...


    Bye,

    Björn

    Once, in the public library, I went looking for VB books, and found a VB for DOS, with a Floppy Disk even, but I never checked it out. I think it does exist, though.

    there most definately was a Visual Basic 1.0 for MS-DOS; I have not seen it in a very, very long time though.
    And no, it was not QBasic, QuickBasic, GWBasic, etc.
