Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

For QuickBasic to work on Windows 10, you will need DOSBox, apparently.

Here's the site to get both working

http://www.qbasic.net/en/qbasic-downloads/DOS/Windows-Solutions.htm

On that site, steer clear of everything that says 'download' except the gray button, with the DOWNLOAD legend in blue, near the center of the page. That will download the needed 'stuff' to run a QBasic program on Windows 10. It even says it is tested on Windows 10, so that's quite promising.

If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated!

If you need further details, please Reply To Expert and let me know.

Thanks.

Hello Russell H
Apologies for late response owing to being away from home.
I have tried the website you suggested and downloaded a zipped file reference number msdos_(2).zip
Opening this file resulted in an advert for a file viewer
This is not what I expected so now I am stuck
Regards
Francis

What file viewer did it ask for, or, a file viewer for what type of file?

Perhaps that's just the README file it needed a viewer for?

Let me know, please.

It seems to me that another Expert took up and accepted your request for Secure Remote Assistance.

In which case, we must wait (for a while) for that Expert to contact you (if that Expert has not already done so.)
