Maybe I should go to buy a lottery now.

The code is open. You can change too.

I hope I can.
But sorry, I am not a programmer, I can report bugs, but it is too hard for me to dig into the source code of the tools I am using.
I am just trying to find easy-to-use tools to replace some python language cases in my work/living.

Hi Xusinboy:

I just installed your VisualFBEditor 1.2.2 on my Windows 10 64 bit machine.

You have done a very good job with this editor. Congratulations on the excellent work!

VisualFBEditor is as easy or perhaps even easier to setup as was FBEdit.

I loaded your VisualFBEditor.vfp project file from the src folder and compiled it with 64 bit FreeBASIC 1.0.7.1 and the project was successfully compiled.

I closed the editor, at which point I was asked if I wanted to save the project file and I did because I had changed the name of the output exe to VisualFBEditor64duh.exe so it wouldn't conflict with the already running VisualFBEditor64.exe editor.

I then renamed the original VisualFBEditor64.exe to VisualFBEditor64orig.exe and renamed the just compiled VisualFBEditor64duh.exe to VisualFBEditor64.exe.

I started the newly compiled VisualFBEditor64.exe and then loaded the VisualFBEditor.vfp project file.

The project file name showed in the left pane but there were no files listed underneath. I then tried the original project file and that attempt produced the same result, no files listed below. I then tried both project files on the original VisualFBEditor64.exe and both project files correctly showed the project file name with the files listed below.

I then went back to the newly compiled VisualFBEditor64.exe, loaded the VisualFBEditor.vfp and tried to compile and got a message stating "No Main file found!"

I then tried to compile Hello.bas on the newly compiled editor and it compiled with no problem.

I'll let you know how it goes when I try it out on Linux.

Thank you for this. Keep at it.

This program is compiled with 1.06.0 version of the compiler.
In the new version of the compiler (1.07.0, 1.07.1) "Open ... For Input" does not work with dynamic WString Ptr. To do this, put a fixed WString * 1024.
My new version is almost done. It compiles with the new compiler.

Hi BasicFan,

Welcome to the Forum. FreeBasic is a great language, but unfortunately, its installation is a bit messy, partly because there are several competing editors available. To get started, read
a) the suggestions of dodicat in reply to BasicCoder2,
b) this guide by notthecheatr
c) google for FreeBasic installation

In all cases, you will need the actual compiler - try the News section.
