: : There is a file called BCOM45.LIB in the Qbasic directory. Is this what I am looking for? There is no BCOM.LIB though.
: : If I do have to download QB again where is a good place to do so. I had a lot of trouble finding the place I did (which is now defunct).
: Yes, it will probably be called BCOM45.LIB if you are using QB version 4.5. I am using that version and the file in my version is called BCOM45.LIB as well, but it works fine on mine.
: Try setting the path of your LIB files under "Options" in QB, or alternatively you could try renaming the file BCOM45.LIB to BCOM.LIB.
: You can also try compiling your programs manually from DOS. Use BC.EXE (it should be in your QB dir) to convert your .BAS file to a .OBJ file (object file). Then use LINK.EXE to convert the .OBJ file you have created into an .EXE file.
: It will ask you for some file names (eg. source listing [NUL.LST]), but most of them have a default value in brackets which you can just press enter to accept. When using LINK.EXE it will ask you for your library file, try typing BCOM45.LIB.
: Hope I've helped!
Yes, you are being very helpful!
Unfortunetly, both renaming BCOM.LIB and manually compiling the program failed to work, as well as attempting to change the library path! BCOM45.LIB just isn't accepted anywhere!!! #$@%^!!!
Any more suggestions?
Thanks for the help.
