Hello, there,
I have download the fasm for windows 1.67.23 and first time run the fasm for windows xp, after set the path to:
C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;c:\programmings\fasm\wbi
n\;c:\programmings\fasm\wbin\include\

and test compile the sample file of its own contained 'beer.asm,
but always the same 'error: file not found' of include 'win32a.inc'

help, how to fix this?

thanx

Easy, take the win32a.inc file and any files associated with it and move it into the same folder as beer.asm and it should compile.

you have to set environment variable "INCLUDE" to FASM includes, not variable "PATH".

Or, you could do it VID's way. I just recall that's how I did it. Razz

The example source provided with this version require you have environment
variable INCLUDE set to the path of the include directory, which is the
part of flat assembler package. If such variable already exists in your system
and contains paths used by some other program, it’s enough to add the new
path to it (the different paths should be separated with semicolons). If you
don’t want to define such variable in the system, or don’t know how to do it,
you can set it for the flat assembler IDE only by editing the fasmw.ini file
in its directory (this file is created by fasmw.exe when it’s executed, but you
can also create it by yourself). In this case you should add the Include value
into the Environment section. For example, when you have unpacked the
flat assembler files into the c:\fasmw directory, you should put the following
two lines into your c:\fasmw\fasmw.ini file:
[Environment]
Include = c:\fasmw\include

thank you, it works!

It works only when I click the fasmw.exe in the file manager,
but if I run the program by type 'fasmw' from the command prompt, it won't work ?!

Just can't tell why ? well, it works at least ^^;

after you change env. variables, try to restart all apps.

For example if you start CMD.exe, then change env. variables, and then start FASMW from still running CMD, it will still have old env. variables. This is because every process inherits env variables from it's parent process.

Yes, I have already restarted the cmd & the fasmw, the error is still there, should I have to edit some env. variables of the cmd or xp ?

maybe this is not important for programming.

do you start FASMW from directory where FASMW.INI resides?

don't do this:
Code:
> c:\fasmw\fasmw.exe    


instead do:
Code:
> cd c:\fasmw\
> fasmw.exe
    


this could be the problem.

yes, I start the fasmw from:
c:\Documents and Settings\vm> (the very first place when I start cmd.exe)
the vm is my username, and the cmd env. is the system wide:
C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;c:\programmings\fasm\wbin\
and FASMW.INI & fasmw.exe are in the same folder as default.


run fasmw in the installtion folder, it compiles correctly

Check if in "the very first place" you have a file named "FASMW.INI", if it is the case then the problem is not executing FASMW.EXE in its own directory and hence the IDE doesn't see any INI file and thus it creates a default file at the current directory.

i'd suggest not using fasmw, seeing as how avg picks it up with Obfustat.ZRC
test.bat:
Code:
cd c:\devel\fasm\include
..\fasm ..\test.asm
pause

Yes, AVG is an IDIOT, but can't be instructed to ignore an let you use FASMW anyway? If not then I change the suggestion to not use AVG instead.
