Changes made to the QB.EXE Versions 4.00, 4.00b, or 4.50 environment are not saved if a Hercules or compatible adapter is used. After changing the editor color options and exiting the environment, QuickBasic always restarts with the default-color attributes. The QB.INI file is not correctly updated. Display attributes must be reselected every time QuickBasic is started.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in Microsoft QuickBasic Versions 4.00, 4.00b, and 4.50, and in the QB.EXE environment that comes with Microsoft Basic Compiler Versions 6.00 and 6.00b for MS-DOS (buglist6.00, buglist6.00b). This problem was corrected in the QBX.EXE (QuickBasic Extended) environment that comes with Microsoft Basic Professional Development System (PDS) Version 7.00 (fixlist7.00).
