can anyone point me to software with the same functionality of the "debug.exe" software. before moving to Windows 64-bit, I used it to write my boot sector code to a floppy.. not just that though, it also has scripting functionality (just to help you know what I'm talking about).

I write 64-bit code routinely, so I can only test the code (without a reboot) on a 64-bit machine.

Thanks.

DOS debug does not work on 64-bit, because DOS programs run in real mode and long mode does not support vm86 mode. You could run debug in an emulator like DOSBOX, use some other program to write the boot sector, or write your own program that uses the PHYSICALDRIVE interface.
For other debug stuff/scripting you could look into various command-line debuggers. Various ones are available for windows.

Evil or Very Mad I already know that it doesn't work, read the post before responding. Evil or Very Mad

I was asking about equivalents/"knockoffs" to it, wise ass.

Use some of your advice for yourself too, System86 pointed out why debug.exe is not available and with a little of brain power you could realize that there will be no equivalents to it.

And what are the other things you did with the "scripting functionality"? You have the solution of writing to a floppy by using what System86 said, do you need something?
