Ok so Visual Batari Basic doesnt work for me. But how about I just use Visual batari basic, and just copy and paste the code from it into a notepad file. Then I compile that with the batari basic program. Would that work?

Before you abandon Visual batari Basic, be sure to double click on install_win.bat. I also updated the VbB page:

 

How to 'Install' Visual batari Basic on a Windows PC

 

Be sure to pay attention to step 3.

OK there is good news and bad news. The good news is I am not getting the index error anymore. the bad is now im getting this error. Also it says that it cant find a: default.bas.bin file. I dont recall that being in the installer in the first place but maybe im wrong

Installer? You're not using that crusty old Tinkernut thing are you?

However the first time I ever tried to use visual Batari Basic I used tinkernut. But that was like a year ago. Could that be the problem though?

If that Tinkernut thing is still installed, you might want to uninstall it, then start again:

Random Terrain:
Your site points to Visual bB to install that version.

Although your site points to an older version with links to his blog for updates, maybe consider just linking to his last blog post: http://atariage.com/...e-for-visualbb/ Or maybe the link to just his blog: http://atariage.com/...-jwierers-blog/

I keep hoping that he'll come back and put the newest version that I have (build 568) in the main thread. It's better than what he has in his blog. The version I have is from June of 2014. The one in his blog is from 2012.

Since jwierer is very busy and nobody knows when he'll put the the latest version in the first post of this thread, I'll go ahead and post the last version that he gave to me in 2014:
 
Attached File  VisualbB_Build_568.zip   2.88MB   149 downloads
 
As far as I know, that is the latest version of Visual batari Basic.
 
Be sure to do what it says here:
 
randomterrain.com/atari-2600-memories-batari-basic-commands.html#gettingstarted
 
And here:
 
randomterrain.com/atari-2600-memories-batari-basic-vbb.html#install_vbb
 
 

Update (2016y_09m_08d_2131t)

The zip file above includes the latest version of bblint.

If jwierer stays busy, there may never be an updated version.
