Hi and welcome to Seven Forums!

It depends on what your application does, more information are requested.

Don't get your hopes up!

QBasic (Quick Basic) was the version of Basic before Visual Basic, which is now the current standard. QBasic ran on Windows 3.x, and any application written in QBasic required the the module named BRUN45.dll (for QBasic 4.5) to be in the application's execution path.

There have been many changes in the language, and in Windows itself, since QBasic was released. My guess is it is highly unlikely that your QBasic application will run on Windows 7 and I am not aware of anything you can do about that. If it does run at all you will have to supply a copy of BRUN45.DLL (or the corresponding BRUNXX.DLL for whatever version you have.)

You can use XP Mode on Windows 7 to use QBasic.
