Hello, i brought AOA a long time ago, finally go around to reading spent a while downloading and installing masm32, hla, then radasm

when i do the helloworld code in radasm and compile i get a popup saying "Error during process creation nmake build"

i try to compile with the cmd prompt ( i am on windows xp btw)

"C:\hla C:\hla\projects\hello\hello.hla
Assembling: C:\hla\projects\hello\hello.asm
MASM : fatal error A1000: cannot open file : C:\hla\projects\hello\hello.asm
Error returned by Assembler = 1"

any help would rock as i am rather excited about this language and wanna start to program it asap, and not being able to compile, proposes a nice lil problem hehe.

The first error probably means that you don't have nmake, or you don't have a makefile written.

second error I can't help you with. Try a verbose compile and list the results here.

RadAsm takes some configuration. There is a help file at the RadAsm site.


I'm also working on an alternative HLA-specific IDE called HIDE that requires no setup and auto-builds makefiles. All the files needed to assemble programs from simple to advanced are included. It's less sophisticated than RadAsm but quicker to setup.
