Anybody know of a simple compiler program for a Qbasic program that works with newer computers AND that doesn't require the end user to have a bunch of files they more than likely don't have? Tried freebasic and it won't compile because it tells me my program has a bunch of errors (despite the fact the program runs fine in qb64). Qb64 requires the end user to have a bunch of .dll files.
Is there some way to so people can just click on the .exe file and run the program? I know in the original qbasic you could do that but with newer 64-bit OS's they don't work anymore.
I don't understand why freebasic doesn't want to compile. The message it gave me was telling me statements like:
let note1$ = "1"
were invalid and couldn't compile.
Anyways made up a little text adventure I would like to pass around to some friends and family and none of them are computer savvy. I all ready know they are not going to try and download a bunch of external files just to play this game. If they can't just click it and run they won't mess with it.
