I would like to first thank BleepingComputer for their help with my last question, but now i am completely lost.

I have compiled multiple QucikBASIC programs of my own creation before, but my latest program uses INTERRUPTX.
So when i try to compile it, the linker asks me to point it to the location of QB.LIB. It runs fine from inside the interpreter.

I have tried copying the file QB.LI$ from my floppy disks using the command A:\> COPY QB.LI$ C:\QB45\QB.LIB

But when i try to compile, then the linker says something along the lines of FATAL ERROR: QB.LIB NOT A VALID LIBRARY :thumbsup:

Can anyone tell me how i can get QB.LIB? It's supposed to be a full installation of QuickBASIC.

OS : MS-DOS 6.22 running inside Microsoft Virtual PC 2007

I gather the file on the installation disk is compressed. Try using UNPACK in place of COPY:

Excellent! It's so long since I used QB that I'd forgotten about UNPACK until I brought up that link.
