Hi

I'm very new to FASM. Can you tell me the difference between

include 'macro/import32.inc'

and

include 'win32a.inc'

and

include 'win32ax.inc'

My code works with each of them. Which one should I use?

Edit:
------------------------------------------
Another question/confusion:

.text vs section '.text' code readable executable

typedef
win32ANSI.inc
win32ANSIXtended.inc

The latter allows you to do such things as invoke MessageBox,0,<"my string here">. Contains extension macros.

I think it is ASCII not ANSI.

Last night I made a copy of my FASM folder and all my files.
Now I try to run it on a another pc and get error about the include.

It seems he can't find any of these files

;include 'macro/import32.inc'
include 'win32a.inc'
;include 'win32ax.inc'

Any hints?

I don't know where .text is defined in your setup. It is not standard. But other macros are defined in win32ax.inc
Code:
macro .data { section '.data' data readable writeable }

macro .code { section '.text' code readable executable }

Set your "include" environment variable. It is stated in the fasm help file about installation requirements.
