Default Is VB for me?

I've written a complex mathematical program in ordinary BASIC. It requires input from the keyboard and outputs to screen and printer. The program works well on my old Amstrad computer with an 8 bit processor. I want to run it under Windows.
   Is VB what I want?
   Is "Beginning Visual Basic 2005" the book I need?

Beginning Visual Basic 2005 is the book that you need to ramp up with Visual Basic in the .Net Framework. This is especially true if you've not worked with Windows programming using Visual Basic.

Thank you. The program I want to run under Windows is in ordinary BASIC. Can this be done? Do I need Visual Basic?

Peter,

I do not believe the program will run in Windows in the command line. I believe you would need to convert the Basic program to Visual Basic 2005.
