Article: Q41582 Product(s): See article Version(s): 2.00 2.01 3.00 4.00 4.00b 4.50 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | SR# S890217-27 B_BasicCom | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 12-NOV-1990 Amdek has a keyboard driver called CLREPC.EXE to help with keyboard incompatibilities with QuickBASIC. To obtain this file, you can call Amdek Product Support at (408) 435-2832. This program is not guaranteed by Microsoft to work properly and is only mentioned for your information. This information applies to QB.EXE from Microsoft QuickBASIC versions 2.00, 2.01, 3.00, 4.00, 4.00b, 4.50, to QB.EXE from Microsoft BASIC Compiler versions 6.00 and 6.00b, and to QBX.EXE from Microsoft BASIC Professional Development System (PDS) versions 7.00 and 7.10 for MS-DOS. It is best to create a batch file that loads the CLREPC.EXE driver and then invokes QuickBASIC. The following is a sample batch file: clrepc C:\<PATH NAME>\QB set epc This loads the driver, runs QuickBASIC, and then resets the keyboard after you exit QuickBASIC. This keyboard correction does not let you highlight text with the extended-keyboard cursor keys; instead, you must use the numeric keypad with the SHIFT key.
