Microsoft QuickBasic Interpreter (QBI) Academic Edition Version 1.00 was shipped in a box that mistakenly shows a picture of Microsoft QuickBasic Version 4.50 screen menus. The Debug menu in QuickBasic 4.50 has Watch... features that are not available in the QuickBasic Academic Edition Interpreter (QBI.EXE) Version 1.00.

The Watch... features shown on the Academic Edition (QBI.EXE) 1.00 package are available in QuickBasic 4.50, which is a more complete and powerful product.


The QuickBasic Academic Edition Interpreter (QBI.EXE) Version 1.00 doesn't have any of the following Debug menu features, but QuickBasic (QB.EXE) Version 4.50 does have them:

Add Watch...
Instant Watch...
Delete Watch...

Where these menu items appear in the Debug menu on the package picture, QBI.EXE actually has Step and Procedure Step options. The Debug menu in QBI.EXE actually displays as follows:

   Step                    F8
   Procedure Step          F10
   Trace On
   Toggle Breakpoint       F9
   Clear All Breakpoints
   Set Next Statement
