Small Basic Not Loading. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to be able to use Small Basic as I have just started an IT apprenticeship and really want to get my head around computer programming, I have installed the program on my Windows 7 PC at work and it operates no problem. However I have tried to install it on a Windows XP virtual machine, and as soon as I try to open it up I get the error message "Small Basic has encountered a problem and needs to close" or words to that effect.

    Fearing that this was a problem with installing on a virtual machine I created a Windows 7 virtual machine, installed Small Basic and it runs fine. This is all on my computer at work.

    At home I have a laptop running Windows XP, when I installed and ran Small Basic on this laptop I received the same error message as I did on the Windows XP virtual machine.

    Has anyone had a similar problem and managed to solve it? I would really like to be able to run this program at home and I'm starting to get really annoyed at it.
