Default Virtual Machines Rock !

Got 16 bit stuff ?

Create a virtual machine running an older version of Windows
( e.g. XP ) in memory. See Oracle VirtualBox. Very easy, handy and

I've got 28 great apps written in QuickBasic v4.5, and 14 in Windows
Visual Basic v3 .

I know there is a provision for running things in a compatibility mode
for older versions of Windows, but I could never get it to work.

In the virtual machine I have a desktop with 42 icons. Comes right up
and all apps work great.

Would be nice to have an app to convert all to VB6 which I use
extensively for all ny contenporary stuff.
