I'm not sure if anything like this exists, but it has saved me time. Between this and the QB version, I have saved and run 200 or 300 source code files with only one click per program. XD

FInstall 2.0 README
(C) 2007 i-TECH and Kristopher Windsor
[FInstall is a quick-launch install-and-run utility for FreeBasic source code.]
When run, FInstall will save FreeBasic source from the clipboard to a .bas file in the Programs folder, compile the program, and run it.
FInstall 2.0 also includes FOpen and FRun, for editing and re-running installed programs.
Files and folders in the ZIP folder:
FB\ Contains shortcuts to the .BAT files. You can add this folder to the Windows toolbar
Programs\ Contains the source code and EXEs that have been saved and compiled
FInstall.exe Saves, compiles, and runs a program from source code in the clipboard
BAT files Launch FInstall.exe with different parameters, which are passed to the FBC.exe compiler, for dialectical compatibility
Total.txt Contains the number of programs that have been installed. This number is used for naming the programs.
Move the FInstall folder to C:\itech\misc, or somewhere on your hard drive.
If you do not install to C:\itech\misc\FInstall, then the shortcuts in the FB folder will not work.
If your compiler is not C:\Program Files\FreeBasic\FBC, then you will need to change that path in the FInstall.bas source code, and recompile FInstall.bas.
If you are running Windows, right-click on your taskbar and select Toolbars > New Toolbar. Then add the FInstall/FB/ folder so you can quickly access FInstall.
You can add files such as fmod.dll to the programs directory so they are available for programs that you install.
The source is included, but the ZIP has the folders organized. For instant access to this program, you can either put a shortcut to FInstall in the Windows QuickLaunch, or right-click on the Taskbar, go to Toolbars > New Toolbar, and select the FInstall\FB folder.

Edit: Version 2.0 is out. It lets you install .BI files (without attempting to compile them), recompile the latest program, or open it in an editor.
