  • Microsoft QuickBasic 1.00 was release 1985 have simple Microsoft Basic Compiler like Microsoft Basic Compiler for Xenix 286 and IBM PC Basic Compiler. QuickBasic 1.00 is only of QuickBasic series to lack IDE Editor. QuickBasic 2.0 have IDE and Online Editor. Today it is hard to find QuickBasic 1.00 maybe ebay have it i know website named might have it http://www.emsps.com/oldtools/msbas.htm but they want $500 dollars for Quickbasic 1.00 that is too much money for one little rare software, finding it on ebay is best bet. QuickBasic is world most popular BASIC Programming language start out as simple Basic Compiler was release 33 years ago.

  • Just bought a Sharp PC-7100. It came with the original book that held the software disks for version 1.01 of Microsoft QuickBASIC Compiler for DOS 2.0 or higher. I don’t seem to have the original disks here but maybe a copy of them. TBD. Might look into it more later but thought I’d post that here if anyone was interested.

  • I interested in your finding Microsoft Quickbasic 1.01.

  • @johnlennon364 I have about 8 disks it came with but none are the factory disks from Microsoft. One might have the program on it still. I’ll look to see. Any idea what the program file names would be too look for? Or extensions? It’s been a while since I’ve used DOS.

  • MS-DOS File Extension is COM., EXE. Quickbasic file Extension is BAS.

  • Thanks. I’ll give it a look.

  • Did you find Microsoft Quickbasic 1.00
