  • Free software for the BBS Members: Circle coordinate calculator

    The question of how to calculate the x,y coordinates of a circle came up again recently. Marv Klotz has a DOS program available but a lot of people aren't comfortable using a command line program. So, I wrote a little circle coordinate calculator everyone may have for free. You may also distribute it any way you like as long as no money is charged.



    Instructions are included in the program, just click the help button. If anyone finds any bugs or has a suggestion for improvement please post accordingly.

    The code is only 39,936 bytes. It requires no installation and makes no changes to your computer whatsoever. It is for Windows only.

      Same here. My PC is quite up-to-date (win xp sp3). Are there any runtime files or something we need that should be included in the exe?

        You must have the dot.net framework 3.5 installed.

        Including the runtime in the exe would make it too large for my server to handle the load. It's a free download from MS.

              I recently installed the dot.net 4 runtime so maybe that affected vb2008. Try the .net 4 runtime instead.

                    Doesn't run on my computer either.

                    I have .net framework 4 extended installed.

                      Download it again and try. It should work now. I was using some special functions from a VB powerpack to draw lines on forms and it didn't include the code. I'll fix that later.

                            I put the lines back in with an image if you want to download it again.

                              Runs fine here Evan. Xp SP3. The only problem I have with netframework is a 1.0 security update that won't install. MS says to remove all versions of net.framework and reinstall. What a pain. Seems to work fine anyway.
                              Thanks.
