  • Microsoft QuickBasic 4.5 for MS-DOS

This article was previously published under Q38488


The QuickBasic Version 4.50 environment lets you toggle the Full Menus item under the Options menu. When QB.EXE is run for the first time, the Full Menus item is off by default.

For QuickBasic veterans, selecting the Make Exe... item from the Run menu presents an unfamiliar pop-up dialog box when Full Menus are "off." This dialog box does not have any way of selecting between compiling with BRUN45.LIB or BCOM45.LIB. The compiler forces you to use BCOM45.LIB (which makes a stand-alone program) when Full Menus are "off."

You can work around this limitation by turning on the Full Menus item.
