Hello,

I have a getting started question. It seems the Include Logical for my Windows 2000 system does not work. I did put it in the FASMW.INI file in the compiler area and in another area where other logicals I have set up do work.

Since the compiler is looking for a PATH to this area, I changed the Path at the command prompt to point to the area on my system"D:\F_ASM\INCLUDE".

The system PATH was changed however the compiler did not work until I entered the full path for the Include Directive.

Since I am just getting started, is there an explanation for this issue.

Thanks,

Hi, John A Spera,
Sounds like you need to set the 'fasm.ini" environment variable. Put these two lines at the end of your fasm.ini text and change the directory text to where-ever your fasm compiler resides:
Code:
[Environment]
fasminc = C:\FASMWIN - DirectX Library\include

did you do

Code:
[Environment] 
fasminc = directory_here

for me its:
[Environment]
Fasminc=C:\fasmw165\INCLUDE
    


then

Code:
include '%fasminc%\file here'

e.g.
include '%fasminc%\win32a.inc'

Hi madmatt and RedGhost,

I made the suggested changes and it does work.

Thank you both!!

I am looking forward to returning to assembly programming. I still have much to learn. I have read the Intel material Volumes 1, 2a, 2b, 3, and some others. I am currently studying the Iczelion tutorials.

It is all very fasinating.

I suggest you do search on this forum for code of Iczelion's tutorials in fasm.
