I'm working on getting the VB6 IDE and VS2012 running on Windows 10 so I can support Dave's COM extension module on my new laptop. Putting Windows 7 behind me is the goal.

Step 1. VB6 install - Complete

I'm amazed how fast it runs.

Mike,

Would you be willing to put together an example how SB theads can be used other than a FOR/NEXT loop in unison? The SB Inno Windows install has SBT included.

Maybe this would make a good code challenge. AIR, what do you think?

I think virtually all modern BASIC translators and JIT or static compilers that are equipped with their own machine code generators (VB.NET, PowerBASIC, FBSL, OxygenBasic) or use 3rd party asm or C compiler back ends (FreeBASIC, BCX and clones) are suitable for successful multithreaded code generation.

Which means that there should already be a sufficient BASIC user base who are aware of that facility and are using it in their creative work in accordance with their main objectives.

I think using MT and assigning a priority, a well managed multi-threaded environment could be achieved. BASIC programmers would have to design their code with a sharing frame of mind.

1 - Run until thread competes
2 - Share CPU with other SB threads
3 - Only run if no other SB threads are active

That's because you're an US resident, Armando. I tried it via my US VPN and it worked for me too this time. (it's a free market, they said... ;D)

Well, you've got a real bargain there, John. You can even play some simpler 3D games now, or try out our ObjReader in flesh. :)

If you still read thick and heavy daily newspapers, why would you be so wary of time proven and rock solid desktop technologies?

And oh, but... :

It has the latest Intel processor, 16GB of fast memory and a 512 GB SSD drive. For me it's the ideal QBE machine. I'm happy and I feel I made the right choice with the Lenovo. I would never buy / build a desktop PC ever again. The keyword here is Demo Machine.

The daily newspaper is thicker and weighs more than my laptop.

I think you could've bought (or built) yourself a decent desktop that would be 3 times more powerful, for approx. half the money you paid for that gimmick.

Just saying.
