-------------------------------------------------------------

Downloadable free software, as with any purchasable
software, contains executable files (the ".exe"
file extension).  Even though that is standard
and in fact necessary, Microsoft will harass you
regarding executable files.

If Windows gives you a message such as:

"Windows has blocked this zipped file from 
downloading because it contains one or more 
files that could harm your computer",

click on where it says "learn more"
and you can then override this.

  RogCAD for Windows (all five versions included)

  This runs on any Windows operating system from 
  Windows 95 through Windows 11.

  ---------------------------------------------------------------
  01/16/2024 Note:  Some recent versions of Windows 11
  might not run RogCAD for Windows.  I'll try to have an 
  updated RogCAD_Windows ready by spring of 2024 which will have 
  long-term compatibility with the Windows operating system.

  (This means porting my VB6.0 code into a freshly created form
  in VB.net.  That new interface is now completed, but some 
  portions of the code need the new VB.net format, involving 
  book-learning.  Could take awhile.)

  DOS_instruct.htm is a supplemental instruction
  document for RogCAD_QB64 and RogCAD_DOS.  
  It's also included in the QB64/DOS downloads,
  but this online copy is always the best choice,
  as minor corrections and notes occur here more 
  regularly.

  
  RogCAD_QB64

  RogCAD_for_DOS style, compiled as an executable using QB64.
  This version is actually compiled in C, and therefore 
  runs much faster than the other versions.  
  255 on-screen colors -- same as RogCAD for Windows.  
  Runs on nearly any computer.  No DOSBox needed.

  -------------------------------------------------------------
  RogCAD_QB64 is still compatible with the latest versions
  of Windows 11.

  See the bottom of this page for dates of minor fixes.
  -------------------------------------------------------------

  The first two RogCAD_QB64 versions below have the same 
  data capacity per data-group as RogCAD for DOS, which is 
  lower than in RogCAD for Windows.  

  The second pair of RogCAD_QB64 versions are the 
  high-capacity per data-group, same as RogCAD_Windows.

       The RogCAD_QB64 downloads include 
       one sample project data folder.

       Supplemental instructions are included 
       in the RogCAD_QB64 downloads.

       You will need to begin with the RogCAD_for_Windows 
       instructions.  See above.

-------------------------------------------------------------

  RogCAD for DOS, compiled as an executable using
  QuickBASIC for DOS.  Runs on XP operating system
  or earlier, or use under DOSBox on any Windows
  operating system through Windows 11.

  RogCAD_DOS is still compatible with the latest versions 
  of Windows 11 for the simple reason that DOSBox is still 
  compatible with the latest versions of Windows 11.

  You can expect to spend one to five days engaged in
  self-study with the RogCAD_Windows instruction document, 
  and another one or two days with the RogCAD_DOS 
  instruction document (if interested in that version), 
  depending on what skill level you are aiming for.
