CTRL+INSERT to Copy Selected Text May Fail in QB.EXE 4.50

In the QuickBasic Version 4.50 editor, the CONTROL+INSERT (CTRL+INS) key combination does not work correctly on the NCR 286 machines with NCR BIOS Versions 4.50 or 4.60, as well as some other machines. Specifically, the CONTROL+INSERT will not work at all if the NUM LOCK, SCROLL LOCK, or CAPS LOCK key is toggled on. The equivalent COPY command from the Edit menu works correctly on these same machines.


You can work around this problem by using the COPY command from the QuickBasic Version 4.50 Edit menu.

This problem does not occur in QuickBasic Versions 4.00 and 4.00b.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in Version 4.50. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
