It has been reported that the WYSE 1400, a computer based on the Intel 8086 processor, is not compatible with QuickBasic version 4.00 because the keyboard cannot be accessed by compiled programs. Although the screen is recognized by QuickBasic, any INPUT or INKEY$ reportedly hangs the system. OPENing the "KYBD:" device name as a file does not correct the problem.

Microsoft has not confirmed or tested this information. Corrections to this information can be reported to Microsoft Technical Support.
