Microsoft QuickBASIC and QBASIC (Quick Beginners All purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) are both Integrated Development Environments and compilers for the BASIC programming language that was developed by Microsoft.

But with the aid of this application, you can circumvent this problem.

This BASIC compiler does not require installation, you can simply download and run the executable file. It’s portability also allows it to be stored on removable drives and run on any system. The compiler opens to up to a user interface that is similar to the one found on DOS, but unlike most applications with DOS interfaces, it comes with support for the mouse. You shouldn’t find it difficult to operate if you’re familiar with DOS.
