You need a permission to include foreign software on a book cd. I know that there's a MASM32-Package available freely and also the 16-Bit-Linker on the official Microsoft site, but I have my doubts that you are allowed to include them into your software when you are making money with it. Why don't you just ask Microsoft?

Going on there website, find some e-mail-adress or telephonenumber, describe what you want to do and if they can help you or if not, ask for some adress / telephonenumber who else could help.
Sounds rather complicated but give it a try...

You could call them, but knowing M$, the anwer is no, but why don't you simply include a link in some html-file directing the users to where to download the required assembler!

How can you know that MDollar will say no? I think it's more approbiate to say "knowing how big software companies normally work" or something like that.
