Greetz, just started getting into asm, im using masm and a text file of information (a tutorial one might say).


Thats' my code, basically its simply displaying a message onto the screen, or at least that's what should be happening.

These are the error that i am getting..

C:masm32asm-completedmsg.asm(22) : error A2004: symbol type conflict
C:masm32asm-completedmsg.asm(37) : warning A4023: with /coff switch, leading underscore required for start address : START

But this would lead me onto writing a completly new thread about the best way (understanding asm), to do things, from start to finish, I gather its not jjust a case of adding in your code to a text file, assembling and waiting?

Within QEDITOR.EXE there are different ways of doing things, ive got other text editors, but i should at least get something going before i experiment with others.

My practice is as follows:

CTRL+C (code/syntax)
Assemble (code/syntax)
Output = Error(above)

Erg, yeah, im new to the scene, but i would appreciate any feedback, comments or ideas on what im doing wrong, im going to sign up to a few more forums, perhaps get some better documentation on actual assembling and not just writing code.

Thanks for the help in advance

Regards Riznix :)

It is 16bit code and requires a 16bit linker...

Would this 16 bit Linker be Third Party?
Or is there something i can use from within the MASM package?

Have a look here...

DOS Forum

I think Iczelion has a link to the 16bit MASM linker on his site...

Iczelion downloads

Might want to take a look at the tutorials on Iczelion's site as well, they are for 32 bit Windows and that's a heck of alot easier than DOS programming...
