    Not meant to hijack this thread!

    I have some old programs I wrote in GWBASIC. I no longer own the computer that had an old version of Windows on it that could emulate DOS and run the programs. Is there some sneaky way to get a Windows XP computer into a C:> prompt such that I could execute good old fashioned GWBASIC?

    Okay, so I'm too cheap to upgrade to Visual Basic. :rolleyes:

    I don't know about a sneaky way, there is however a very straight forward way. Command prompt is on the start menu and last time I checked it will still run the old DOS Qbasic (I haven't tried gwbasic however).

    Call me STUPID & IGNORANT if you care to.

    Do you literally mean I should be looking for the words "Command prompt"? Under Accessories maybe? I'm just not seeing it anywhere in Start.

    ADDED LATER: Maybe the 'Run' bit of Start?

    It may depend upon the particular version of Windows you are running. On my "Windows ME" (now outdated and I am going to replace it), I can go to "Programs", "Accessories" and find "MS-Dos Prompt".

    Hit Start->Run, type "command.exe" (or just "command") and hit enter.

    And, since matrixvb is a commercial product from the MathWorks, I need to close this thread. We don't condone piracy here.
