Although I am still running Win 98SE I have qbasic running on my PC. I made a Folder called Basic and downloaded it to there. All my "basic" programmes that I still use are also in the same folder. Give it a try. Make a Folder called "Basic" or "Qbasic" on your hard drive and download to there. Because XP doesn't use DOS don't know whether it will work, but it is worth a try.
