I have attached a current Script BASIC Windows 32 bit Inno install. Give a try and let me know if you have any issues.

A problem-free installation on Win 7 - and faster than I recall from before.

Thanks for the feedback. No speedup improvements I'm aware of. A user on the thinBasic forum mentioned a problem with saving from the IDE. I don't use the SB IDE for editing so that must be how I missed it.

Update:

SAVE seems to be working. What is needed is a Save As option. Next release.

It would be great to hear from others that tried Script BASIC for Windows 32 bit.

The feedback I'm looking for is how do you use Script BASIC. Console utilities / scripts, web programming or desktop GUI apps using IUP?

Which OS do you use as your primary development platform?

What do you likie best about Script BASIC?

Okay, here we go ....

Windows 7 (64-bit)
Console/script (backend) use at the moment (still developing the application from scratch)
Front end is currently VB6

What do I like about it?

Brilliant string handling, fast and free ;)

I agree and I think the array support is just as outstanding.

Just thinking about the array support makes me come over .... all unnecessary. *shudders*

Let's face it, SB is pretty close to being the pinnacle of straight BASICs. I just wish we could have a dragon-drop wysiwyg interface similar to VB6. Still, hope springs eternal.

If you like VB6 for your UI, the Script BASIC COM/OLE automation extension module supports saving forms as OCX controls. VB6 does callbacks to SB functions for processing.

An alternative to IUP on Windows.

Okay, thanks.

Does the converse (a VB6 form as an OCX) work, too?

I have a thread going on COM 64 on the https://oxygenbasic.org/forum showing a VB6 form interacting with SB.
