Can anyone suggest a good and easy(and free and small in size to download) to use compiler for Windows 7?

I can suggest the Notepad ++. Includes syntax highlight for many different languages-Pascal,C,C++,html,Ruby and many more. Let me know if it is okay to use.

Will it be able to compile to exe?

QBasic and GNU C++ can do that.

But again they do not run on Win7, do they?

Hi Agnishom;

Gnu C++ should run on 7. Check the site.

QBasic you will just have to try.

Please give me the link to GNU C++

I disassembled the QBASIC exelutabce with IDA after I realized that it consistently hangs with anything except a real IBM BIOS ROM. What to look for is a call to INT 15h, fn 22h. After calling that, QBASIC does the XOR thing on its own code segment. I'm not sure if this has been analyzed/documented elsewhere. I was comparing the execution with/without IBM BIOS and found that with non-IBM BIOS, QBASIC hung in code that just didn't look right at all.I'd suggest using a newer QBASIC (from IBM DOS 5.02, or even 5.00.1 if you have it I don't). A TSR is not worth the effort unless it's just for fun. I can't comment on the relative qualities of IBM vs. AWARD BIOS, so I don't know which is the least painful solution for you.

Hi;

I remember using QBASIC 7.0 but can no longer find it. Anyway, 7.1 is out I believe.
