nop, it's faster to write something in visual basic but i don't use it, because i dislike it's p-code, VM and it's not so easy to control vb-program in debugger



It also has Native-Code Compilation which is a hacked up MSVC 5/6 compiler to produce pretty ugly compiled VB code.
Unless thats what you mean by it's not so easy to control vb-program in debugger.

I used PureBasic 4 for a couple of months. I was really impressed by the software, it's a very powerful tool for Windows programming, great manual, thousands of code examples on internet, but not free.

Me too. Laughing

- Installer does NOT crash
- From 3 EXE examples I tested all 3 crashed immediately at start both in DOS and "Windows" Laughing
- Compiling the source did not work either

I'm quite sure that it is NOT my or my PC's fault: most examples from other compilers like FASM or FreeBasic do work for me, on "Windows", partially also in DOS Smile

There are good and there are bad compilers ... and there are ways to find out the truth Laughing

NTOSKRNL_VXE maybe you are right.
But i made a lot of small projects in PB4 and i had no problems. Everything worked fine on all my three PC's, on Win XP and Vista too !

Also, notice that many of the code examples from older versions won't run on PB4, they need small changes..

- PureBasic doesn't come with EXE examples, all examples are in source form.
- PureBasic can't compile for DOS, it is a native 32-bit compiler.
Did you even get the right product? Wink

Edit: This is the PureBasic demo: http://www.purebasic.com/download/PureBasic_Demo.exe

Low enough to make sure that included examples don't compile Laughing

Maybe I downloaded them from an "external" PB advertising page Laughing

Maybe ... but since 32-bit code from FB, FASM, MinGW, CYGWIN, even VC++
works in DOS for me your assumption "There are no 32-bits in DOS" might
be wrong Laughing

The following examples does not compile:
Win32_API.pb (requires API which is not in the demo version, this is written at the top of the file)
Sprite_SpecialFX.pb (requires API which is not in the demo version, simply remove ", #MB_ICONINFORMATION" (without the quotes))
SoundPlugin.pb (should compile)
PopupMenu.pb (uses API)
PackerProgress.pb and Packer.pb (API constant, follow same procedure as for Sprite_SpecialFX.pb)
DLLSample.pb (API constant, follow same procedure as for Sprite_SpecialFX.pb)
MDI ImageViewer.pb (should compile)
Desktop.pb (API constant)

All the other 64 examples compiles.

If a program written in C crash you don't blame it on the C compiler, do you?

Well, you are wrong. Of course there is 32-bits in DOS, and no, code compiled for Windows doesn't work in DOS. Just because it's a black window doesn't mean it's DOS. Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Rolling Eyes

black window ???

Depends. But sure I suspect the compiler also, besides the developer,
the hardware, etc. Idea

Thanks for 6 LOL's but you are wrong. Code compiled for
"Windows" does work in DOS (not all, but a nice amount of
useful code Smile ), and if it doesn't for you it means that you don't have DOS
and have not tried. And, I'm definitely the last one who would call the
NT console ("black window") "DOS". Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Shocked

That's not DOS, it's a DOS extender, not DOS. And the DOS extender is compiled for DOS. It's kind of saying that "my car goes faster than yours (if I change the engine, tires and interior)".

ok this is a very old post but i have some questions i think PB is much
better than the other basic applications and one great thing about PB
is FASM Very Happy i was wondering why PB is so behind among all the basic programming tools even google does not link to PB if i search for a word BASIC
another good thing about PB is we can write codes for games and its very lite weight comparing to those apps like C# and thinking about writing games with ASM that's very scary Laughing sorry for my beautiful English anyway thank you
