Speaking of masm, I was going through the Win32 ASM features by Chris Hobbs and he mentions that the masm to use is version 6.xx. Now, all I can find is version 5. Is the feature wrong or has version 6 mysteriously disappeared?

Also, will Chris Hobbs be returning with further installments of his features?

Let Microsoft mail it to you for free Go to DirectX site, downloads for developers, and click on masm link, that will take you to a page with a phone number that you call to get yourself Masm 6.11 on 5 floppy disks, everything is included even the debugger, but no book. They don't sell book to masm anymore, otherwise the book would cost approx. $30, I know I asked them about it. Now go have fun

Yes, the latest version of MASM is 6.14 -- I do not believe version 5 will work for the things you will need it for.

The links to everything Win32 oriented that you will ever need (including a link to my company's page ) can be found at http://win32asm.cjb.net

Finally, yes -- I will be continuing the series. I am about halfway through the next one. Christmas and many other things have been taking up much of my time lately.

After much searching and all that...

To get MASM at Microsoft, you have to wade through a hefty download for the W98 DDK at http://www.microsoft.com/ddk/install98ddk.htm

Once you do that, you have to patch MASM (well, you don't have to...) up to the current version of 6.14 from http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q228/4/54.asp

I must say, I found some Win32 ASM files and I am astounded by the content that can be packed into such small files once compiled. But then, that's what you get with assembler.

Ah, for something a bit smaller than the W98 DDK (unless you want play with device drivers), go to http://www.microsoft.com/ddk/download/98/BINS_DDK.EXE (this file is actually inside the DDK package above), then extract BIN_WIN98_ML.EXE and BIN_WIN98_ML.ERR and rename them to ML.EXE and ML.ERR respectively. Move the files to your VC98\BIN\ directory. Now patch them as above.
