Hi Everyone,

For all the crazy cats that do Windows assembly, do you use the inbuilt resource macros, or prefer to use an external resource editor?

The reason that I ask, (I typically only do Linux programming), is that my b0 compiler ( http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?t=3570 ), now officially supports PE64 format for Windows x64 programming. Not having done a lot with Windows, I thought I'd better ask what others tend to use, before adding custom support for PE based resource sections.

PS. MessageBoxA is obviously the ASCII version of the MessageBox call, what's the name of the Unicode version?

I think you need to use MessageBoxW (and the other -W functions) for unicode support under Windows.

Thanks crc, I'll try that when I get home later.

For those that indicated, "what's a resource section?" see section 3.1.6 of the fasm manual - pdf version that comes with fasmw164.zip.

I prefer using external resource editors as these tools makes easier the maintenance of resource scripts.
