Have you seen the exe file that I sent to you in the .rar file?

static.exe is 2560 bytes... you should have compiled and linked without the arguments that I told you yesterday.

cl /c stdafx.cpp
lib /nodefaultlib stdafx.obj

then copy the stdafx.lib to the folder where is static.cpp
(I've done it and the stdafx.lib is 736 bytes long)

finally ml /c /Cp /coff static.asm
link static.obj /subsystem:console /nodefaultlib user32.lib kernel32.lib stdafx.lib
(I've done it and the static.exe is 2560 bytes long)

Read again my last post, there isn't any mention to static1.lib, you could delete that file if you want.

Cant find "cl.exe" in MASM bin directory and is the "lib.exe" the same as that in the MASM bin directory

Cl.exe is the Microsoft VC++ Compiler so you should look for it (and also for the lib.exe but the masm will work perfectly too as far as I know) in the VC++ bin directory.

Alternative: find and execute vcvars32.bat (from a dos box). All VC++ tools will have their paths set. So you could call cl from any directory.

Hey! thkx it worked out and an exe of 2.5 kb only!!!!

but is there any way i can use a gui rather than this Command Line INterface coz its difficult to type it in always and for many projects the same thing over and over again

What I do is to write a makefile.bat with the instructions that I want ... but I think that there is a dialog in the VC++ IDE where you can specify those options but I don't remember because I don't use the IDE anymore.
