SmallBasic.EXE has Trouble Running RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all~

    I have tried to install Small Basic upwards of 5 times and even used the "Repair" option a few times. However, the problem persists.

    What happens is: I open the .EXE file and the GUI loads, but within seconds I get the dialog, "SmallBasic.EXE has stopped working."

    I am running Windows 8. Funny thing is: SB worked fine when I first upgraded my system.

    Is there any type of work-around or something I can do to make it work again?

    Please answer ASAP; all suggestions will be appreciated :P

    Thank you

    I can write 1000 lines of code in roughly 10 seconds. Here's how:
    i = 1

    For i = 1 to 1000
    TextWindow.WriteLine(i+ ". Code")
    Program.Delay(10)
    EndFor

    Make Sense?

  • Well, when i first downloaded small basic, i remeber having to Silverlight and microsoft.net thingie i think... maybe you could try completly deleting small basic(silverlight and all) then download it again.

    Sorry if i don't help, i am a newbie to computers and small basic practically.

    Oh, you could also try this link i found, if it still works.

    1] http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?5him3nh9eau42q5 - simple SB compiled executable - tests .Net (copy to a folder and run the exe).

    2] http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?xen15db1890w6hj - full copy of installation directory, it might run from this, indicating just something odd about the installer and your setup.

    i found these on a different post on here. hope you don't mind.

  • Thanks 8BiT PoNy,

    I will try those out!

  • The full directory works! I wonder what the problem must be, then. I think I will compare the files and see if there's something missing.

  • Okay, it seems like there were backups (where the first character of the names were replaced with a '$') so I deleted them and now it works like a charm!

    Thank you for suggesting the full directory download, 8BiT PoNy! It helped me troubleshoot!

  • Even a little bit is a big help!

    Sure, it's a small step, but as soon as you get more comfortable with the software and such, you will be helping lots of people!
