I would like to run Visual Basic 4.0 16 bit alone on a computer. The computer has no operating system. In an attempt to avoid paying $100 for Windows I was wondering if Debian would work. Sound, modem, and printing are not needed. The computer is a Dell Optiplex with Pentum 100, S3 Trio video, and 48 MB ram. Do you think VB 16 bit will run on Debian? Guess X Windows is needed too.

I beleve you would require a Windows emulator for win32 (or win16) applications to work on Linux kernel.

You must install wine. (www.winehq.com)

I looked at their application database (http://appdb.codeweavers.com/appbrowse.php) and I could see any test about visual basic 4.

You should install wine and visual basic under it.
But VB risks not to run 100% ok under wine, since wine didn't arrive yet to a beta status.
