Greetz People!

Ive been pottering around for the last couple of days, im new to asm, and so i got going on the tutorials.

Ive read through and entered the code shown in "_masta_'s Tutorial on Win95 ASM Coding Part 0"
which im sure you've all done, and entered it into my masm32 text editor.

Im wondering where im going wrong, when using the text file to complile / assemble the code im getting some error's:

Microsoft (R) Windows (R) Resource Compiler, Version 5.00.1823.1 - Build 1823

CVTRES : fatal error CVT1101: cannot open rsrc.res for reading
Press any key to continue . . .

So thats my Output from the command prompt after initiating 'compile' under the masm32 text editor.

Well.. as you can see there's something up with the creation of the rsrc.RES file (I dont know what this is used for, but the problem stems from masm using the sdk for ms visual 2k3, why does it do this?), ill go and read up on RES files after this post.

Also: When assembling using Masm32's text editor im getting code error!

C:masm32asm-completedmsgbox_tut.asm(5) : error A2008: syntax error : Locals
C:masm32asm-completedmsgbox_tut.asm(6) : error A2008: syntax error : jumps

If I put a ' ; ' in front of Locals/ jumps i get a better output. Or so i seem to think so. (No errors at least)'

1,482 msgbox_tut.asm
598 msgbox_tut.obj

Without the ' ; ' i get : syntax error : leaving me with no *.obj

Any advice would be great, Im reading through a few places at present, *.hlps etc.

Masta's Tuts use Tasm not Masm. Better to start using Iczelion's tuts as base if you want to program with Masm. :)

Ok yeah.. i did see that it was in tasm and not masm, wasn't thinking there was much of a difference, guess there is..

Thanks for the help non the less!
