How can i find the exact byte number in the exe which is the first assembler command for the program, like i will see if i use a debugger on it. i tried the cs * 16 + ip of the EXE header but it wasn't exactly it. Does any1 have an idea?

Maybe you're looking at the DOS header of a windows executable. Every windows executeable has got a DOS-header first, then a small DOS program (which prints something like "This program cannot be run in DOS mode"" to the screen), then the windows header. Further information:
