Q33715: "Floating Point Error" with Inboard 386 Configured Incorrectly
Article: Q33715 Product(s): See article Version(s): 4.00b 4.50 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | B_BasicCom | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 7-DEC-1989 A "Floating Point Error" may occur when using an Inboard 386 that does not have a math coprocessor with QuickBASIC Version 4.00b or 4.50. The error occurs when the Inboard 386 is configured as though it has a math coprocessor when it does not have one. Configuring the board properly solves the problem. This information also applies to the Microsoft BASIC Compiler Version 6.00b for MS-DOS and MS OS/2. The "Floating Point Error" does not occur with QuickBASIC Version 4.00 because the presence of the coprocessor is detected differently than it is in Versions 4.00b and 4.50.
