Hmm... Well, don't feel stupid, but I think you are starting at this the wrong way. Personally, I think you should learn either how to program DOS programs in assembly language or how to program Linux programs in assembly language before attempting to start coding Windows programs in assembly language.

If you are coding DOS programs, I'd recommend you look at Randall Hyde's AoA (Art of Assembly language) pages (DOS version). These are REALLY GOOD. http://webster.cs.ucr.edu/AoA/DOS/

Once you have read through those, you then might want to read through the Intel manuals which can be found on intel.com but I'm not finding them right now for some reason---it's tricky because there are a lot of spec files and sheets there but you won't want most of them. See if you can find something with the word "architecture" in it because that's probably what you want. Read those through (should be about three of them), and then you can also read through and find the architecture manuals at amd.com and read those through. You should then have a pretty good foundation (assuming you understood everything in those and could get a few programs working using that information) and be able to move on up to Windows assembly language programming if you want.Smile

Every section is a newbee section Smile

You can ask whatever you want and someone will try to help you. Write your questions in a clear way and better with an example. And please do a search in the board first to get the quickest answer !

Personally I think it is possible to learn win32 + fasm directly, without any previous knowledge in programming. Shocked
