Good question, the first time I used Fasm I had the same problem.

The line in the source file that says
Quote:
include 'win32a.inc'


Doesn't have a path so you need to put the path to the directory where the file is infront of it
include 'c:\fasm\INCLUDE\win32a.inc'

I better way is to set a global variable for the path.
include '%fasminc%\win32a.inc'

To do this (if your using windows xp)
- Right click My Computer, click Properties
- Click the Advanced tab, click Environmental Varibles (button towards the bottom)
- In the User Variables box (top one) click New
- Where it says Variable name put fasminc
- Where it says Variable value put pather to the Include folder (ie: c:\fasm\INCLUDE\)
- Click Ok then click Apply and Ok

Or, if you want to just use " include 'win32a.inc' ", add your FASM Include directory to the INCLUDE environment variable. this way, all the 'modern' code samples will work, and you won't have to type %fasminc% all the time.

I had the same problem. I think the examples should have the correct path in the first place, except I prefer a relative path such as
Code:
include '\include\win32a.inc'
    

rather than a global path, such as
Code:
include 'c:\fasm\include\win32a.inc'
    

Of course, using "%fasminc%" works too, and so does Ultra Crunchy Man's INCLUDE environment variable (which is actually the best solution, though a little more obscure in Windows).
