Using QuickBasic 7.1 on WinXP. My program will OPEN just fine if the file is in the same directory as QBX.exe, but not if it is in another directory. For example:
OPEN "" FOR BINARY AS #1
works just fine. But:
OPEN "C:" FOR BINARY AS #1
(or other variations, such as omitting drive letter, putting only in quotes, etc.) gives path errors.
Is there a way to do this?
