These questions have probably been asked a couple of times, but I don't have the answers...
These are the files I have in my directory. Some of them are clear for me, some of them not. I will point them out with a "*" here


QB.EXE
BC.EXE
LIB.EXE
LINK.EXE

 These Libs: how does QB use them
*BCOM45.LIB
*BQLB45.LIB
*BRUN45.LIB
QB.LIB
*QB_EDR.LIB

QB.BI
QB.INI
QB.QLB

The help files: what do they each contain?
*QB45ADVR.HLP
*QB45ENER.HLP
*QB45QCK.HLP

This OBJ file. A for me, OBJ files are relocatable programs, that must be linked before becoming an executable...
*QB45ADVR.OBJ

Hrmm. I don't know sure but I can say the following:

BCOM45.LIB and BRUN45.LIB are required if you want to make stand-alone EXEs.

BQLB45.LIB is required by LINK.EXE to make QLBs out of LIBs.

I never heard about QB_EDR.LIB.

QB45ADVR.HLP, dunno
QB45ENER.HLP, dunno
QB45QCK.HLP, quickhelp in the IDE

There is no QB45ADVR.OBJ in my QB...

Hope it's a little more clear now Wink

That helps!

The only method I know in these cases is to move the files one by one away from the directory, make tests, and see if something stops working.

I'm not sure, but I think the .OBJ may be used when someone wants to customise the help files. But it's just a best guess!

Yeah, the method works, but is kinda harsh Smiley

Perhaps, but I don't have one, perhaps it's the version?  :-?

I think that some members have boxed copies of QB45. Ask them for the original files included in the package. Here is a list of mines:

Jark: you are missing all the example files. They are referenced from the QB help in several examples. Do you want to contact me so I can send you the complete package?

Thqnks Nqthqn/ I hqve qll of the; in fqctm but I listed only the files thqt I think qre necessqry for AB to zork. I4; trying to figure out zhqt4s the role of eqch file<<<

:y keyboqrd hqs szitched to qwerty /////

My keyboard had switched from azerty to qwerty...

I had to reboot... (Thanks XP)

Well, I was saying, Nathan, that the file list consists of the files that are really necessary: I have the examples files, but I do not pu them in my work directory. Thanks anyway !

I also have a french QB4.5, by the way, even if i use the english one...

Well, I think that if you're gonna distribute QB45 it's better for you to distribute the complete package.

I had not considered this aspect of the subject...

So I'm going to check that I still have these files... Since I'm perfectly capable of losing my own files, I'm not 100% sure I still have all of these. In this case, I'll let you know, Nathan :wink:

======
Edit: I have only a part of the .BAS files...

Nathan, if you can send them to me in a zip file, I will post a "complete" QB4.5 on my webpage ( I think you have seen the disclaimer and copyright mention I have written ? Find it clean ?)
