> Windows > include problems for beginner
I am new to Windows assembler programming apart from playing
around a bit back when I joined this group. At the time I was
tossing up between masm and fasm. Now I am trying to make time
to give it another go on my new computer. I am familiar with
with assembler DOS programming using TASM, MASM (without the
HLL macro directives) and mostly NASM although this was some
time ago now.
Once again I am working through the Iczelion tutorials using
fasm source code provided by Sulaiman Chang. I remembered to
change the return to ret but the include I have forgotten
how to set up. With MASM this seemed to be all automatic after
I loaded it.
When using the editor provided with fasmw I had to change the
include '%fasminc%\win32a.inc' to include 'win32a'. But when
I unzipped the Fresh editor (perhaps too complicated for me to
use?) I had to give the full pathway.
This worked for the Fresh editor but now it doesn't work for
the other editor, even for those with the include 'win32a',
that worked fine before loading Fresh.
It now gives error messages:
define field@struct ExceptionCode,dd<?>
I am sure this all very elementary but I haven't really done
any of this for many years.

it could be code faults.
maybe it is time for me to do a real update on the tutorial code.
btw, could you let me know what tutorial are you following now?

I thought the only Windows tutorial for fasmw was the
It is a problem in that the Iczelion text is for the MASM
version and I now have to figure out the HLL stuff again,
.IF and IFELSE etc.
One of the problems I had earlier was the examples being
in other assembler syntax, namely MASM and RosAsm both
not looking like the simple NASM DOS syntax I used to use.
Thus I spent hours trying to figure them out so I could
translate their code to FASM. One of the reasons I think
I lost interest back then.
I did a search of the FlatAsm messages to find my old posts
when I first tried to learn Windows Asm. This was back in
September 2005. It is amazing how much I had forgotten!
Back then I changed,
'%fasminc%\win32a.inc' to '%include%\win32a.inc
but I don't remember how I figured that one out.
However it isn't working now. Fresh requires the full file
path. Someone also suggested back then to use win32ax.inc
but that isn't recognized by Fresh anymore either.
I don't see how it could be source code faults as they
compiled fine back in September 2005.

oh. fasm underwent some changes from september 05 to now, (well, unless u are using the sept 05 version) otherwise, usually, some changes in code are required.
i am trying to set up some video tutorials so that to ease everybody learning journey, i post the link here later.

Am unable to unzip the files.
Although I seem to remember seeing the .rar files
before I don't actually have the software to unzip
them? Seems like .rar adds more complexity to get
some simple outcome.
I see I have to buy WinRAR from rarlab?
I have to minimize my video downloads as my limit
it 200Meg download per month.

Don't worry, actually you don't have to buy anything. You can download WinRAR trial version from winrar's homepage. In trial version at the and, you will see message which says that you should register your copy of the program. Nothing more

you can use 7zip too: http://www.7-zip.org/
although decompression only for all formats except ZIP, 7z, tar, bz2 and gzip, supports also rar, cab (windows can compress these for you), arj, lzh, chm (wow!), z, cpio, rpm and deb
This calls for... Ultra CRUNCHY Man!
Ta da!! *crunch*

WinRAR's good but 7zip is better.
7zip is open source freeware.

Thank you everybody I have the movie tutorials unzipped and working.
Not sure about the movies however as I have to try and memorize
all the moves, a series of stills or just statements as to what to
select with the mouse may have been easier? I could just print
them out. Anyway I shall give it a go.
