It's true... PowerBasic is the consultant's secret weapon and it has been my weapon of choice since 1992 when I compiled my first application under PowerBasic's previous name, TurboBasic.
It would be hard to list the many ways in while I have used the product but here are some that come to mind, many of which are still in use today.
- Created Active Directory GPO Deployment System used by over 30,000 users and has been executed over 153.3 million times.
- Parsed and reformatted tons of data.
- Developed Windows User Profile solution which acts as a replacement for roaming profiles.
- As a commercial VDI Delivery Solution under ThinLaunch, LLC.
- As a databridge for a large insurance company.
I use PowerBasic for troubleshooting application issues, quick fixes, and full blown applications. I would be lost without it. While I still do some C++ development, nothing comes close to the development speed and stability of a PowerBasic application.
It is EVERYTHING promised on the website!
