  • v7.04 to v8.04??

    I currently use PBWin v7.04 and about to sell some source code. The buyer will be purchasing PBWin v8.04. Will it compile okay without modification? Would a buyer of PBWin v8.04 be able to obtain v7.04? Thanks.

    There's no way to tell with certainty until you try it. The vast majority of the code will be just fine, but there's always the possibility of an identifier clash with a new reserved word. If any changes are needed, they should be minor.

      Only changes I saw were minor conflicts with new Keywords, and adding the word "BYVAL" to pointers being passed.

      Beyond that nothing that a few minutes of "Compile and Run" and the compiler find an error for me couldn't fix.

      All should be good
