Notes: The .NET version of the Binary-Decimal Converter made for the simple reason that it is said Windows 8 for ARM-based Tablets will not be supporting native x86-based programs. It is also said that Microsoft will solve this problem with the increasingly popular .NET Framework. It is a slightly debugged version of Alpha using the new Visual Studio 11 Developer Preview (.NET Framework 4.0). I am now working on the Metro-style App of this program.
Please report any bugs and issues while testing. Thank you!
Warning: This is only the very first release (the project is not even set up yet; this version was actually finished in August). Please feel free to test with its functionality and report any bugs, BUT PRACTICAL USE IS NOT SUGGESTED. USER IS NOT GUARANTEED FROM LOSS OF DATA/MONEY CAUSED BY THE PROGRAM.
Notes: The .NET version of the Binary-Decimal Converter made for the simple reason that it is said Windows 8 for ARM-based Tablets will not be supporting native x86-based programs. It is also said that Microsoft will solve this problem with the increasingly popular .NET Framework. It is a direct upgrade from the VB 6.0 Enterprise version of project using VB.NET 2008 Express (Upgrade Wizard), with several minor tweaks (otherwise doesn't even compile).
The project archive includes everything: Binary, Source, Upgrade Report, Temp Files, and Others.

Description: Do you remember all the long and complicated directories under DOS with all your programs in? Or do you remember all the complex parameters for using them? What, you use sticky-notes? Try out this mini program and simplify your work! You can register all your program paths on the Launch Menu provided and launch them whenever you want. Also with user account system, encryption and several manual options.
Additional Component: Simple Installer for DOS 1.0.0 (Installer in the Distributable Package)
Description: An easy, universal installer for DOS programs that features a user-friendly wizard-like interface and a simple, formatted configuration file to fit all programs. You can also make your program run right after entering system or add its working directory to default search-path set ("PATH" environment variable) to be able to run it from any other directory.
Note: You can copy SETUP.BAT, SIMPINST.EXE and UNZIP.EXE from the archive below and write a configuration file named as SETUP.DAT according to the following syntax to use it for distributing other programs:
(No space is left after a colon; "": optional)
SoftName:<name of the software>
SoftVer:<version of the software>
DestPath:[<default destination path>]
SrcArchv:<file name of the archive file containing all files of the software in the same directory>

This is a hard disk image made by UltraISO 9.36 Premium Edition, which includes:
and four Pascal compilers:
It also includes the most basic IDE CD-ROM driver shipped with the MS-DOS 6.22 boot diskette and the Microsoft Mouse Driver 8.20 which is commonly used (only with PS/2 mouse, like what we have at school).
You can download this image and use it in virtual machine software (such as the free QEMU Manager 7: http://www.davereyn.co.uk/qem/setupqemuk70.exe, others require format conversion: http://www.starwindsoftware.com/converter, register for free download). It will be mounted as a 64 MB hard drive and you can use it to boot up a virtual machine or under an existed operating system.
What's the most useful is, you can write this image to a pen drive (best to be under 512 MB, not tested with larger) and use it to boot up your computer to MS-DOS, which supplies a pure DOS environment for Pascal program testing, especially convenient for 64-bit OS users! What you have to do is, just download UltraISO 9.3.6 Premium Edition at: http://www.ezbsystems.com/dl1.php?file=uiso9_en.exe, serial number as follows:
After booting up, you can type:

Description (from Wikipedia): Visual Basic (VB) is the third-generation event-driven programming language and integrated development environment (IDE) from Microsoft for its COM programming model. Because of its graphical development features and BASIC heritage, VB is considered to be relatively easy to learn and use.
