Software install

Post by mickey »

Hi,

I've installed ReactOS, and it looks just great.
Next I like to install a VisualBasic app. I wrote.
But I cant get the install.exe to run.

Or am I to early and do I need to wait for a more mature ReactOS, as i assumed ReactOS is a (sort of) wine
?

VisualBasic applications won't work on ReactOS now.

VB apps

I just ran my first VB app on ReactOS. Changes are not all in CVS yet (there's some debating going on about how to fix one of the issues) but it shouldn't take much longer.

I have a better idea, write something to deal with 3 finger salyuts, since ROS hasn't yet.

PS. I think the security will come soon, but I don't know for sure (Ask GvG et al.).
Coming on, coming up, let me help ROS and I'll be able to look @ a life well used.

i thought native compilers like delphi would get better support
and bigger priority in ROS not stupid interpreted vb apps :roll:

Feeling a bit left behind, are we? :)
Thing is, I do have VB but I don't have Delphi so it's more difficult to test Delphi. If you can send me (gvg@reactos.com) a Delphi "Hello, world" type of program I can try to make it run.

Whow! Cool. :D

Which VB version? VB 4, 5 or 6?

Good Work!

Good idea, but I think applications written in c or c++ are better for ReactOS.

VB6.

So, does that mean that only VB6 apps will run, or is it backwards compatible to VB3, 4, 5, etc...?

Thanks.

I made a small app called "screenshot maker" in vb6 some months ago. Maybe it will work.

I think (not sure) that VB3 and 4 were 16 bit? Those apps most certainly won't run. Not sure about VB5, give it a try :)
Note that it's still likely that most VB apps won't run 'cause they call into unimplemented APIs and stuff. But at least they're getting through the runtime initialization phase now.
