Hello fellow bascom users,

I recently moved bascom-8051 and Bascom-AVR to a new computer (windows-7, 64bit).

The AVR version starts oke, with just a few seconds delay.
The 8051 version however starts with almost a minute delay.
After dubbelclicking the desktop link the bascom-8051 startup logo is vissible.
There are no error codes.
When the IDE is finally visible everything seems to function oke.

I found a earlier topic regarding the same problem.
But not a real solution to the problem.

I installed the latest full version 2.0.16.0

Does anyone know how to solve my problem Question

Don't know if it still is a must... Do you have a printer installed? In the beginning of Bascom it was a must to have a printer installed...

Have fun

I have no idea about the delay. Did you looked at the event viewer messages?
Is the terminal emulator working correct?
Make sure all settings that use a COM port, have an existing COM port selected.

By default windows 7 has a printer driver. The need for the printer was only so that fonts would show well. I use win7 64 bit myself.

Hi fellow bascom users,

Finally found some time again to investigate my start up problems with bascom 8051.

Because i switched from windows Xp on my old computer to a new computer running windows 7 profesional SP1 (64bits) i updated bascom 8051 to version 2.0.16.0.

My Original copy on cd-rom does not run on a window 7 computer.


After login i downloaded the latest complete version from the update site.

After unzipping and running the installer the program is installed under program files (x86).

After starting bascom from the start menu a error message appears.

'file bsc5132l.dll is missing on this computer.'


i coppied this dll it from my old computer and added it to the bascom folder.

After starting bascom from the start menu the startup screen appears but it takes almost a minute for bascom to start.

Bascom appears to run oke, al the buttons are present.

When i compile a working bascom program the compiller finds an error that is not there when i compile the same program on my old XP computer using version 2.0.14.0.

i get an error on the following line.

buzzer = voordeur or achterdeur
all three variabels are dimmed as bit


I have made several attempts to install bascom 8051.
But no success so far.

Does anybody know what i am doing wrong.

Rens

i checked the 2 problems. for the error message you can write to support to get a fix. it seems to be the result of an update in my development software. so while i fixed it, i am checking if it affects other code.
for the long delay when starting : i have no idea. the only thing i can advise : check ALL settings in options and make sure all settings have a value. if you still can not find it, write to support. i could have a look with teamviewer on your PC. maybe you have some anti virus soft that creates a sandbox or virtual environment? the windows event log could contains clues too.
it can also be the case that there is a reference to a network drive which no longer exists. When you did a clean install this does not seem likely however.
