  • Please refresh and try again.  If it still says 5.1, it means the servers haven't replicated the new build yet.  Give it a couple hours and try again.

  • All,

    Just tried to load V 0.6 after deleting what I had.  It loaded 5.1.  So, it doesn't appear to be on the server yet.

  • I installed Small Basic 0.6. During installation, specify a folder as "C: \ Program Files \ Microsoft \ Small Basic \" (default). However, Small Basic has been installed in the root directory of drive C: \! WTF?

  • Michael, did you update the path that is displayed by default?  The path you posted here has spaces in it, that could have caused the issue.

  • :(
    Spaces added parser forum.

    Run the installer with administrator privileges solved the problem.

    I'm having the same problem as Glennium.

    It is now Friday August 21st on the west coast (PST) and I'm getting the installer for version 0.51, not 0.6.
    I ran it.  It is NOT 0.6.

    When will 0.6 be available?

  • When I click on the link too http://smallbasic.com
    I am redirected to the old 0.5 page at
    I downloaded the installer.  It is still v0.51.

    When will I be allowed to download version 0.6?

  • Finally got 0.6 installed.  I had to find and remove all copies of smallbasic.msi from my pc, and then went to the microsoft download center.
