    Hi all, I was looking for a BASIC that I could operate from my PPC so I found this site.

    I'm only using my HTC 9090 (blue angel, Orange SPV M2000 using wm 2003 se)
    so want a .cab file installation but when I click on the (cab file) link on the front page using IE it starts to load it up as text in the browser! Below is an example of the beginning of the text, is it me doing something wrong? cheers ... ian

    example :

    MSCFIq< [AZˆ*©7ˆY BASIC4~2.000`…©±6R€ Controls.008^n3ˆŒ 0000SAVE.007ª^3¨ PICDOW~1.006¸†

    n€Basic4ppcAnywhere Software%CE1%\Basic4ppc%CE2%Start MenuBasic4ppc.lnkBasic4ppc.exeNumUpDown.bmpConstants.txtGeneral.txtKeywords.txtPicDownArrow.bmp SAVE.BMPControls.txt@ArrayList

    ArrayList are dynamic arrays which means there size increases as needed.

    Ok, tap and hold (which is what I presume you mean) does not give any kind of 'save target as' option ... but nevermind, I used activesync to copy the .cab file over and installed it on my PPC.

    Now,,, next problem :) remember that I am a complete newbie to b4ppc ...

    The default program as stands is:

    Sub Globals

    End Sub

    Sub App_Start
    End Sub

    When I choose 'run' from the file menu and initially choose a name for it (Test1) and just choose to save it into main memory .... after this I get an error:

    Error compiling program.
    Error description: form1 is
    not a known control or object.
    Occurred on line: 6

    Whenever I choose to 'run' it after this I don't get asked where I want to save it but I do get the error.

    Any ideas ?
