Q39248: QB.EXE 4.x Doesn’t Save Screen Settings on Hercules Adapter
Article: Q39248 Product(s): See article Version(s): 4.00 4.00b 4.50 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | buglist4.00 buglist4.00b buglist4.50 B_BasicCom SR# S881129- | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 9-MAR-1990 Changes made to the QB.EXE Versions 4.00, 4.00b, or 4.50 environment are not saved if a Hercules or compatible adapter is used. After changing the editor color options and exiting the environment, QuickBASIC always restarts with the default-color attributes. The QB.INI file is not correctly updated. Display attributes must be reselected every time QuickBASIC is started. Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft QuickBASIC Versions 4.00, 4.00b, and 4.50, and in the QB.EXE environment that comes with Microsoft BASIC Compiler Versions 6.00 and 6.00b for MS-DOS (buglist6.00, buglist6.00b). This problem was corrected in the QBX.EXE (QuickBASIC Extended) environment that comes with Microsoft BASIC Professional Development System (PDS) Version 7.00 (fixlist7.00).
