Problem with BASIC...Not Visual Basic
Posted on 2000-03-09
Yes...some folks are still using this vintage 1987 applet. I know the question is a little "off topic" but I figured I might find the right experts here anyway.
I have this customer who has a couple of BASIC scripts that do some engineering calculations for him. It works great on his Pentium 166 MHZ. When you double click on BASIC.EXE, it opens up the archaic little interface.
Well....we just gave him a Celeron 500 MHZ, and when he double clicks on BASIC.EXE, he gets the message "You can not shell to BASIC."
My "GUESS" is that the machine is now too fast for the antique BASIC applet.
Any suggestions on how I can slow this down (just for this application) or is there another way around this?
