ResEd from radasm.com, though it is of course no good with fasm.

microsoft link/polink.

notepad++ for everything.

MSDN online, because the installable docs aren't portable between machines.

I use OllyDbg, WinASM, MS Link, Mathematica.

Sometimes its faster to prototype algorithms in a HLL: I've tried many different languages over the years, but Mathematica currently serves that purpose. Its a nasty language because it allows all kinds of methods to be mixed together in a verbose or terse symbolic mess.

Yes I forgot to tell I use OllyDbg as well. Since some people recomended to format or talked about the utilities them use in a non-Windows OS then I encourage them to provide good counterparts for the Windows software that has been talked here.

In my personal interest, I would like to know a good replacement for OllyDbg and perhaps even for WinDbg. By good replacements I mean exactly that, not utilities that also debug programs like the not really handy gdb (which works and I used it myself but I still prefer Olly a lot more).

I've settled into what I use so I don't recall all the different apps.
gedit and geany are better than any of the text editors mentioned above, like Notepad++. vi, and especially vim, is a better editor than most. And emacs beats anything on Windows. But there's a learning curve with vi/vim and emacs especially.

But there's also nvu and bluefish(?), too, along with others I can't remember right now.

gdb is great once you learn it, and it's gui interface is ddd. But I love ollydbg, too. A command line program that might be as good as ollydbg, but it's command line and no gui, is, uh....argh....I forgot. Begins with an 'A'. (I've been away from assembly for a while and starting things up again)

nobody uses golink?
it's pretty easy to use (link directly to DLLs without *.lib).

The import table works fine with that as well, but i wish i had a nice little tool to do all the DLL work for me in making a lib file to use with visual studio.
