hello all Smile , um i'm a newbie asm coder (inspired by fasm , hehehe) and i cant understand whats wrong with this code ?! Confused
Code:
include 'win32ax.inc'

.data
     badCaption   db   'badmsg',0
     badText      db   'badmsg',0
     goodCaption  db   'goodmsg!',0
     goodText     db   'goodmsg',0
.code
     start:
           mov eax,2AEh
           mov ebx,2BCh
           add eax,ebx
           cmp eax,ebx
           jne badboymsg
           invoke    MessageBox,NULL,goodText,goodCaption,MB_OK
           invoke    ExitProcess,0

     badboymsg:
               invoke    MessageBox,NULL,badText,badCaption,MB_OK
               invoke    ExitProcess,0
.end start
    


when i try to compile the sources it pops an error out and it says "Write Failed" ! um plz dont laugh at the app because im still getting to know with fasm Smile

You must have this executable still running somewhere in background.

@smoke: Usually I get such errors if the program:
1) is in an infinite loop
2) is being debugged at the moment
3) is being viewed under blocking hex-editor

All these problems arise because the executable is being USED and you can't write to it.

press CTRL+ALT+DEL to get into task manager, find process whose name is same as executable's name and stop it
