BasicX Programming Environment and Windows 8

Started by flyerx_2000 May 8, 2013
Hello,

I would like to know if the BasicX Programming Environment will be updated to work properly with Windows 8. The environment options in the BasicX editor will not accept the string length, even if its left empty. There may be other issues but that is the one that breaks it for my application. Using Windows compatibility options does not help with this issue.

I realize this is a very old program and it may not be even updated anymore. Is there another compatible programmer available?

id like to know they plane on writting a linux one too ....

One probably should not count on any upcoming changes to the BasicX IDE;
it's been a long time since the last update.

I can't help with Windows 8, but the IDE runs fine in Linux under Wine.
