Bad practice vs. helpful workarounds Re: [libertybasic] Re: Poor Liberty Basic Customer Support
There is no reason to expect that I shall boot you from the group for
making such a comment.
These measures are needed for Vista for released versions of Liberty
BASIC because Microsoft has decided to turn on various security
measures (if you can call them that) in Vista. Future versions of
Liberty BASIC will not need any special knowledge to install and use on
Vista. I do not consider these things to be "bad practice" as you put
it, but rather they are helpful workarounds if you want to use Liberty
BASIC while waiting for a more Vista compliant LB.
