Re: Modern replacement for RPSORT.COM?

I have just tried to run RPSORT.COM on my W7 64-bit machine and had an error message to say that the software will not run on a 64-bit machine.

Compiling software

I have a lot of programs that I have written using QB45 but now that I have a Windoze 7 64-bit machine I have just installed QB64 on that.
