hi,
i am moving into Iczelion's Win32 Assembly Tutorial 14
that required us to use the win32 PROCESS_INFORMATION structure.

i declare it like below
Code:
section '.data' data readable writeable
piA   PROCESS_INFORMATION
    


but unable to assemble it successfully. the assembler return the following error:
C:\WINDOWS\DESKTOP\Tutorial>fasm tut_14b.asm
flat assembler version 1.55
tut_14b.asm [39]:
piA PROCESS_INFORMATION
error: illegal instruction.

could i know what trigger that illegal instruction error?

sincerely,
vbVeryBeginner d(..?)b

This error means there is no such structure defined. For some reason in KERNEL32.INC it is called PROCESSINFO instead of PROCESS_INFORMATION, perhaps it should be fixed?

The fasmw and includes are updated more frequently (it has even own versioning, it's still 0.9.x).

is that possible for you to provide us( the fasm community member) a link for the zipped or RARed version of your current fasmw (0.9.x) INCLUDE directory?

sincerely,

Just change the name of the structure in kernel32.inc...

struct PROCESSINFO
.hProcess dd ?
.hThread dd ?
.dwProcessId dd ?
.dwThreadId dd ?
ends

struct PROCESS_INFORMATION
.hProcess dd ?
.hThread dd ?
.dwProcessId dd ?
.dwThreadId dd ?
ends

therefore, i really wish, if ya could provide us, the zipped version of FASMW/INCLUDE for every minor update so we won't have to download the 500+ kb files.

sincerely,
