hey,

i just downloaded the:
flat assembler 1.73.22 for Windows
size: 1035 kilobytes
last update: 09 Feb 2020 9:35:36 UTC


and now whenever i try to compile anything it says: undefined symbol for every winapi call.
this problem happens when i use:
Code:
library kernel,'kernel32.dll'
include 'api\kernel32.inc'    


i had to manually construct the import section for every dll im using using:
dd 0,0,0,rva kernel_name,rva kernel_table
dd 0,0,0,0,0
kernel_table db 'kernel32.dll'
... rest of the import section ...

i also was able to use this format:
library kernel,'kernel32.dll'
import kernel,\
used func name, 'lib func name'
...


so is fasm1 broken or what?, seems i cant let fasm to automatically find and construct the import section for me!

api\kernel32.inc relies on DLL being defined as kernel32:
Code:
library kernel32, 'kernel32.dll'    
Take a look at the file contents.

every function im using exist in kernel32.inc, i even tried to compile many older programs it just says undefined symbol for every winapi call.

even the most stupid function ExitProcess fasm says undefined symbol for it.
im not sure whats wrong, and constructing the import section manually is boring. (whether using dd ... rva or kernel/import pairs)

yes, same weird issue ..

fasm exist on my computer since 2017 (before even joining the forums), same path same ini file .. same everything.

anyhow, i right-clicked fasmw.exe -> properties -> [previous versions] and restored the older version .. and now it works fine.

so weird.
