DOS 16 bit for Qbasic EXE files. Requires a 32 bit version of Windows. Newer NT Windows 32 bit versions use NTVDM.

Windows 10 32 bit is supposed to be able to run QB graphics screens, but my version no longer supports full screen for now. 32 bit Windows XP, 7 and 8.1 do run QB full screen however.
