Where did SB v1.2 install? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just installed SB v1.2 on my desktop. Version 1.0 had installed in "c:/program files/Microsoft Small Basic" but the new v1.2 did not do that. Where did it install?

  • Thank you for your quick response. (And I do have Win64)

    However, it did not install there :(


    Thanks to Pappa Lupub's suggestion to use task manager, I found it.

    It was in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Small Basic\

    I had not noticed the "(x86)". Ver1 had installed in "Program files" without the (x86).

    Thanks for the help :)

  • PS and first of all:

    if this is the same machine with SB 1.0 installed and existing "C:\..\Small Basic"  path you described above, DID you look if this is still version 1.0 or has updated to v1.2 already ??

    Meanwhile you probably found it. Else i would look in to the

    (current user) Startmenu folder -> "Small Basic".  There should be an installer shortcut file to launch SB and then use Taskmgr/ProcExplorer  aso. to see where it lives.

    If install. suceeded, there are different traces in the file system and registry, eg.


    1.) search your drive for SB.exe, eg:   dir \SB.exe /s

    2.)  in %windir%\Installer an eg. 258825c.msi file (sort by last mod/created) or
        for Subject "Microsoft Small Basic" (sorting details view by subject)


    search for "Small Basic"  under HKLM  and/or HKCU  branches

    eg. entries under HKLM:

    HKLM\...\Installer\Folders  or ...\Installer\...\Components   as well as


    under HKCU:


    HKCU\Software\Microsoft Corporation

    If installation did/does NOT work, you can forget about the installer and simply extract it to wherever you want on your drive like C:\Tools\SB12   or whatever.

    by cmdline switch  eg. extract msi files from the command line



     or similar, 7zip also does the job (SB.msi\\XXX  and then all the *kinect*.dll to 'Lib' folder and *.sb to 'Samples' folder)

    Finally create a shortcut and you're finished.
