How to convert to visual basic from old qbasic?

P: 6

I have a huge program written in old BASIC. In fact I don't really know what flavour its written in, looks like qbasic I think.

I don't need to know what the program does, I just need to run it. It runs perfectly fine on powerbasic DOS 3.0 . But I dont have powerbasic and I dont want to buy it either.

But I do have MS Visual Studio .NET 2008.
And I created a console application, which pointed out to a multitude of errors.

Most of the errors are usually just undeclared variables and etc..

So is there any conversion article to make it run on MS Visual Basic ? Or which free compiler should I download?

(I dont know any syntax of Basic, and I dont have much time to learn, I just need to compile the program and tweak some variables)

There is no tool convert the entire code of QBASIC to VISUAL BASIC. you need to change the codes manually.
