  • If you're trying to install/reinstall Small Basic, i just checked this link. There's a download button there (top right hand side) and it seems to be working ok. http://smallbasic.com/

  • It would help to know what operating system you use. i would think that most operating systems have a search option in the start menu or what ever, so you could try searching "Small basic", and click on the re-installer. if nothing comes uo exept just the program, then goto the link Jibba Jabba gave you.

    Another thing you could do, is just delete small basic it's self. then, re-download it.
    Sorry if i'm not very helpful. i am new here, and i am learning things about computers and coding. i don't know much, so again, sorry if i'm not helpful!

  • Do you mean you got a message "Microsoft Small Basic trying to reinstall" when you tried to open Small Basic?  If so, I'm not sure but I think some part of Small Basic configuration may be broken.

  • Hi MB555, sorry to hear it's still not loading.

    I don't why it's doing that. Could be you're clicking on the icon that runs the installer or a .NET issue.

    Since it's still not working:

    Maybe you could try, or get someone to help you, the following:

    1. uninstall small basic from the control panel
    2. download and install small basic  http://smallbasic.com/
    3. and if you need to download Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 http://www.microsoft.com/en-au/download/details.aspx?id=22

    Hope you get it fixed soon.

  • Okay, I'll give you a few (lot of) steps.

    • First, go to the folder in which your small basic files were saved-as you made them.
    • Next, back them all up in a new folder such as, "Small Basic Backup".
    • Next, go to "Control Panel" and click add/remove programs.
    • Uninstall Small Basic Completely.
    • Reboot PC
    • Make sure Silverlight is installed.
    • Install .NET v3.5 service pack 1 and v4.0 onto your PC.
    • When all is said and done, re-download Small Basic.
    • (I'm not sure if i understand, but if you have no internet connection, but have another PC or handheld with download capabilities, download SB and transfer the file to a flash-drive or your PC directly.)
    • Run the setup file, or the file you downloaded from: http://www.smallbasic.com/ (Top right-hand corner)
    • After installed reboot PC and run SB.
    • This should work, it worked for me.
    • Good Luck!
    • :)

  • Okay, you need to download .NET VERSION 3.5, service pack one. And like I said, download also the .NET framework v4.0

    but, here:

    (v3.5 sp1)

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=22

    (v4.0)

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24872

    Good Luck!

  • On other thing to try is after uninstalling Small Basic, completely delete in the installation folder before trying to reinstall.

    Have you every installed a previous version (before 1.0), if so then you may need to uninstall it fully using the appropriate msi for the previous version.
