I am new to HLA and RADASM and feeling very stupid about now. I can?t get it all to work right, and since everybody else seems to be doing better than I am, that makes me feel like the proverbial class idiot. Does Randy Hyde still teach assembly language at Riverside?

To make a long story short, I bought the book, downloaded and read all the free stuff on HLA, and then downloaded the HLA v1.65 upgrade and then re-installed the HLASETUP after removing the old version. However, both link and nmake generated fatal errors for Dialog App. Then I tried HW, the console version, and got the same fatal errors.

I re-read the RadAsm/HLA integrated development environment, made changes that Randy suggested, and tried and failed again. Either the instructions are obsolete, or I?m doing something terribly wrong.

I use to be a fairly good masm programmer back in the 16-bit segmented DOS days. I migrated to C, then C++, and finally to ADA before I threw in the towel and decided to return to assembly language. I think time I spent developing ADA or C++ programs far exceeded time I spent developing masm programs. However, I need help getting back up on the proverbial horse.

Randy, please help!

Did you setup the paths in HLA.ini and the RadAsm paths dialog?

Did you also install MASM32 needed first? HLA needs an assembler installed first.

Go here for instructions: http://webster.cs.ucr.edu/AsmTools/HLA/HLADoc/HTMLDoc/Install.html

Thanks to everyone who had input. However, I started the process all over again and this time everything worked as it was supposed too. I must have corrupted something.

Does anyone know if Randy still teaches at Riverside? I think a refresher course may be in order for me.

I resigned from UCR in the spring quarter, 2000, in order to take a better job than the one I had in industry at the time (though I was technically a full-time instructor at UCR, I also worked full-time outside; however, the outside job that I had paid me a bit less because of the flexibility it offered in terms of hours).

Cheers,
Randy Hyde
