If you're worried about valid PE, i read one of the reasons why AVs FP all over fasm made programs and fasm itself is that fasm generates invalid PE files. So, until you make a PE from scratch, your PE's probably invalid too.
There is only one invalid thing in PEs generated by FASM - it sets two deprecated flags in IMAGE_FILE_HEADER.Characteristics. It took me one minute to fix this.

No offense, Fanael, but you're being too pedantic. If a PE runs and most tools handle it, it's considered "good enough". Saying it's invalid implies (to me, at least) that it's completely useless.

No offense, but it's a PE. Of course it's completely useless. It won't run on any good OSs.

@Azu: May not be a good OS, but it's definitely useful to 90% of people who use computers Wink

Yeah, but it doesn't run on some versions of Windows (alas, I can't recall now which versions complain about that). And PE isn't strictly bound to Windows, there are other (known only by their autors, but they still exist) systems that support this format.

Those aren't what I was referring to, and are no great loss to society.
