What is a QBASC or MSDOS equivelent for Windows 7 64Bit?

I loved using Qbasic for Windows 7 in MS DOS, but sadly windows 7 64-bit doesn't support it. I know that there is the command line (cmd.exe), but it's not the same as qbasic. Is there any program I can use (besides a VMWare and OracleBox) that I can use to recreate the goodness that was qbasic?

You could try running QBasic in DOSBox.

A little Googling about it and found a nice free and open source alternative, FreeBasic.

It's just a Basic compiler for Windows (and other systems too) that claims to have almost full compatibility with QBasic programs, as well as new functions. At least it seems to merit a try, but never used it myself.

Where do I get that? (Qbasic, I meant. I already have DOSBox)

Qbasic, QuickBasic and other such programs are 16-bit and have real problems running on 64-bit hardware. It might work to run them in a 32-bit version of WinXP in the WindowsXP Mode installation on Win7.
Install and use Windows XP Mode in Windows 7

When one finds a solution to a posted question they really ought to post that solution, might be someone else interested. Otherwise a forum is of no use to others.

Oh, sorry. My solution was getting DOSBox from DOSBox, an x86 emulator with DOS, downloading QuickBasic45 from Most popular QBasic and QuickBasic Downloads • QBasic Top 10 Downloads and clicking 'download' on QBasic 4.5 EN, running DOSBox, mounting C: as the directory that you downloaded the file in, going to that directory, typing 'qb', and it runs the program. I'll upload a video later.
